Gurkin Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Gurkin Family History

Gurkin Family History

The names Gurkin, Durkin, Durcan and Dorcan in Ireland are all derived from the native Gaelic O'Duarcain and MacDuarcain Septs that were located in Connaught Province in the West of the country and especially in County Sligo. Gurkan is another variant sometimes used as an anglicized form of these Sept names.

A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
