Origin of the Name Farrell

The origin of the name Farrell was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Farrell include O'Farrell and Frahill. This Irish sept was O'Farrell of Annaly, County Longford, and the chief who was known as Lord of Annaly, resided at O'Farrell's Fortress, hence the name of the town and County. The sept then formed two divisions, the chiefs of which were O'Farrell Boy and O'Farrell Bane. There were a great number of distinguished churchmen of the name, of whom Capuchin Father Richard O'Farrell, 1615-1663, of Annaly, was the most notable. The O'Farrells were not overwhelmed like the great majority of other Irish septs and played a worthy roll in resistance to the English. The great majority of present day bearers of these names are to be found in County Longford and in the surrounding areas. The variant Frahill is most commonly found in County Mayo.
The Farrell 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 Farrell descendants.
