The Lynch Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Lynch parchment:
Although Lynch is among the hundred most frequently found surnames in Ireland it has two distinctly separate origins. It is both the anglicised form of the Gaelic name O'Loingsigh and also the modern equivalent of the Norman De Lench. Although the descendants of the Norman family have been far fewer than the native group they have been particularly well known on account of their long association with the city of Galway. They settled first in Co.Meath Lynch’s knock commemorates a battle in 1643 a branch of this family migrated to Galway in the early 15th century and they became the most prominent of the ‘tribes of Galway’. It was Dominick Lynch who obtained the city’s charter from Richard III in 1484 and between then and 1654 84 Mayors were Lynches. Dominick’s son, Stephen, went on to obtain from Pope Innocent III the unique office of Warden of Galway, and again many holders of the Wardenship were Lynches. There have been many other notable ecclesiastics of the name, including the centenarian Archbishop of Tuam, Most Rev. James Lynch (1609-1713). The Gaelic Lynches originate from several quite independent septs, most of which lost their distinct identities after the Anglo-Norman invasion in the 12th century, but representatives can still be found in their home territories. These include Thomond, Sligo and Breffoy, all of which have produced distinguished Lynches in various fields. Colonel Charles Lynch (1736-1796) whose name gave rise to the American term ‘to Lynch’, came from the northern sept whose head in Medieval times was Chief of Dalraida. Thomas Lynch (1749-1779), the youngest of the signatories of the American declaration of Independence, came from an Irish family then in its third generation in the U.S.A.
