Lowe Family History


The Lowe ancient family history was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Meaning 'at the low', Lowe is a locational name from someone who lived near a hill. Variants include Low, Lowes and Lowis. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Ralf de la Lowe, County Salop, and a Hugh de la Lowe, County Herefordshire, who were recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273. The Scottish Lowes are from the old lands of the name near the Loch of Lowes in Selkirkshire and first appear on record in the year 1318. In Ireland the name is found in small numbers throughout the four Provinces, having been introduced there from Scotland centuries ago. Lowe is also a synonym of the Irish names MacLoy and McCloy, that are both taken from the Gaelic MacLughadha Gaelic sept of Oriel.The Lowe 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 Lowe descendants.
