The Morgan ancient family history was found in the archives. Morgan is a locality name meaning 'white sea dweller'. Variants of this name include Morgans and Morgen. This name is of Welsh Descent and from a place called 'Ap Morgan' in Wales. This name spread to England, Ireland and Scotland in early times, and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Walter Morgan, of Oxford, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273 and a John Morgan who was baptised in Saint James, Clerkenwell, in the year 1616. A Thomas Morgan, of Chester, was recorded in the 'Wills at Chester', in the year 1602 and a John Morgane was Burgess of Glasgow, Scotland, in the year 1419. In Ireland the name is numerous in Oriel, Dublin and Belfast having been introduced centuries ago from Wales. Morgan is also an anglicized form of the native Gaelic O'Murchain sept of County Offaly, more often changed to Morahan, and of the O'Muireagain sept of County Westmeath, more usually changed to Merrigan.The Morgan 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 Morgan descendants.
