Flannery Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Flannery Family History


Flannery Family History


The Flannery ancient family history was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. The names O'Flannery and Flannery are mostly identified with two different areas. One of the two main Gaelic Septs of O'Flannabhra, from which these names are derived, was of the Ui Fidhgheinte, located at Killala in County Mayo. The other was one of the principal families of the barony of Connelloe in County Limerick. It is in these areas today that the name is to be mostly found. John O'Flannery was Bishop of Derry from 1401-1415. Thomas Flannery, 1840-1916, also of the north Connacht sept, was a pioneer in the Gaelic revival movement that took off in the latter half of the nineteenth century.The Flannery 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 Flannery descendants.
