Rowe Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Rowe Family History


Rowe Family History


The Rowe ancient family history was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Meaning 'red haired one', variants of the name Rowe include Roe, Row, Rowes, Rowson, Rowell, Rowett and Roebuck. This name is of Celtic origin and is found throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in these countries. Examples of such are a Richard del a Rowe, 1386, a Stephen del Rowe, 1426, a Roger del Rowe, 1441, and a Hugh Rowe, 1477, who were all recorded in the Lists of the Mayors of Macclesfield. In Ireland the name Rowe is used as a synonym of the Gaelic O'Ruaidh which was more often anglicized as Ormond and found in the County Cork and Waterford area. Rowe is also an abbreviation of the name McEnroe, which is derived from the MacConruabha sept of Counties Cavan and Leitrim. In modern times these names are widespread throughout the four Provinces.The Rowe family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Rowe descendants.
