Cullinane Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Cullinane Family History


Cullinane Family History


The ancient origin of the name Cullinane was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. The Gaelic name O'Cuileannain is often anglicized as Cullinan in County Clare and as Cullinane in County Cork and in East Munster. The prefix O is seldom found with Cullinan or Cullinane in modern times. One important sept originated in Donegal, but there the name has most often been changed to Cullen. Up to the end of the seventeenth century bearers of the name were still using the form O'Cullinan. The Civil survey and the 1659 census indicate that the name was very numerous in County Cork in the seventeenth century not only in Barryroe but also in the surrounding baronies. Two bearers of the name from Kinsalea were among the Irish who sailed for Spain after the Battle of Kinsale. At that time, as today, branches of the sept were well established in County Clare and in County Waterford.The Cullinane 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 Cullinane descendants.
