The Quinlan Coat Of Arms Story
Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Quinlan family history parchment:
Quinlan is the particular Anglicised form into which the Gaelic O’Caoindealbhain has been rendered in Munster. The sept or clan of O’Quinlan originally came from north Meath in the province of Leinster. They traced their distinguished descent back through the senior line of the descendants of Laoghaire, who was King of Ireland in the 5th century at the time of St. Patrick, to the people of the Ui Neill. The Anglo-Norman invasion of the 12th century, which made a greater impact in Leinster than in other provinces, considerably reduced their influence. Some property was retained, however, until the defeat of James II at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. The form of the name then in use was Kindellan which survives still in Spain, where some of them fled as exiles. The modern equivalent would be Conlan or Connellan. The Munster branch which settled in North Tipperary, adopted the Quinlan form and these are still numerous is in the area. Cork and Limerick also have a considerable population of Quinlans, but in county Clare the variation Quinloian is found. If some of their ancestors took the name to Spain and France- a street in Bordeaux is called Rue O’Quinn- an even greater number took it across the Atlantic to the United States of America. The 19th century was the peak time for emigration, and Quinlans were among the thousands of individuals and families who left Ireland at this time. Laurence Quinlan was perhaps typical, although all we know of him now is that on the third of March, 1853, he left Liverpool for New York on board the ‘Columbia.’
