The Malone Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Malone family history parchment:
In Irish, O’Maoileoin, this name means descendant of the follower of St. John. Unlike many Gaelic names the ‘O’ prefix has never been added to the English form; it is also unusual in that the present concentrations of the name are no longer situated in the territory where the original sept or clan was established. Its modern representatives are most likely to be found in either county Clare or county Wexford. The origins of the latter group are obscure but it seems likely that the Clare Malones are descended from the ancient sept which was a branch of the O’Connors of Connaught. For many centuries the principal family was associated with the abbey of Clonmacnois. Many Malones became bishops and abbots of this ancient foundation established sometime between 545 and 549 by St. Ciaran. It is now one of Ireland’s most important monastic sites and its many treasures are cared for by the state. There have been a number of Malones over the centuries who have distinguished themselves in the church. The Rev. William Malone (1586-1689) was superior of the Jesuit mission to Ireland; the Rev. Sylvester Malone (1822 -1906) a priest from Clare was author of the ‘Church History of Ireland.’ Many others have represented the name in politics and in military service including three who served with King James II’s army in Ireland. One eighteenth century family was particularly notable: Anthony Malone (1700-1776) became chancellor of the exchequer, his brother, Edmund, a member of parliament and a judge. The latter’s son, Edmund, was a friend of Dr. Johnson and Boswell.
