Origin of the Name MacCallion

The MacCallion family history was found in the archives. The name McCallion is often of Scottish origin but is also found in Ireland where it is derived from a number of Gaelic sept names.
A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. Irish septs and clans that are related often belong to even larger groups, sometimes called tribes.
The MacCailin sept was located in Counties Donegal and Derry where they were gallowglass warriors to the O'Donnells. The town of Ballymacallion still exists in County Derry. In County Fermanagh McCallion is sometimes changed to MacCallan and even to Collins. In modern times the name McCallion is still mostly found in Ulster Province.
The MacCallion coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all MacCallion descendants.
