The McEvoy Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the McEvoy parchment:
The roots of this anglicised Irish surname lie in two ancient Gaelic names. Most McEvoys are descended from a sept called Mac Fhiodhbhuidhe, the latter meaning ‘son of the woodman.’ who, having been chiefs of the land around what is now Moygish in Westmeath, moved in early times to Leix. Here they became established as one of the leading seven septs, and were Lords of territory in the marshy wastes which lay to the East of the Slieve Bloom mountains. A man of Leix, Braion in 1563, shows their location exactly-on it they are called Murmur Fhiodhbhuidhe. Together with the six other groups, the leading families of the sept were transported to another part of Ireland in 1609. The humbler clansmen, however, stayed in their homeland, and descendants of these are still found in this area. Some McEvoys, however, trace theirs origins to another quite distinct Irish sept, called Mac Giolla Bhuidhe, deriving from ‘Giolla’, meaning ‘fellow’, and ‘Bhuidhe’ meaning ‘yellow’. This surname, which should be anglicised to McElwee, has sometimes been incorrectly shortened to McEvoy. Conn Mac Giolla Bhuidhe, an eleventh century Abbot of Mungret, was one of the latter group, and descendants of this sept are now most usually found in Armagh and Louth. The most outstanding McEvoy was undoubtedly Francis McEvoy, born at Longford in 1757, who became president of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
