The McGinnis Coat Of Arms Story

Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the McGinnis parchment:

It is from the hodle chief Sarah, who held Dal Araldhe, that this great sept is descended. Though there are many variants of the name, including Magennis and Mac Genis, each stems from the Gaelic name Mag Aonghusa meaning ‘son of Angus’. After losing much of its glory during the dark ages the sept Rose to prominence once more in the twelfth century, as Lords of Iveagh in South down. This English, the neighbouring O’ Neills or, occasionally, the Scots, but with astute policies and determination to survive, they retained their territorial power until the seventeenth century. Then, along with other members of the old Gaelic nobility. They were forced to flee the country and sell their military expertise to continental powers. Brian Magennis, second viscount Iveagh was Colonel of his own Regiment in the Austrian army, and died fighting in 1703; his brother, Roger, who died six years later, led a distinguished career in both French and Spanish armies. In 1759 the famous brewing concern, which in time was to eclipse all others in size and world- wide importance, was established. The brewery now covers a sixty acre site in Dublin- a city which has greatly benefited from McGuinness Generosity. Charles Donagh Maginnis was a much acclaimed architect born in 1867. After training in Dublin, he emigrated to America, where his most outstanding works include Trinity College Chapel, Washington, and Baltimore Cathedral, he died in 1955. Due to mis-spelling during the course of time the name is often seen as McGuinness or McGinnis.
