Origin of the Name McAuliffe

The origin of the name McAuliffe was found in the archives. The name McAuliffe is derived from the Gaelic MacAmhlaoibh sept who were an important branch of the McCarthys of County Cork . The Chief of the sept resided at Castle MacAuliffe near Newmarket in Cork .
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 last recognised Chief of the name, Michael MacAuliffe, was a Colonel in the Spanish Army and died in Spain in 1720. The famous French physician Joseph Oliffe, 1808-1869, was born in Cork , his ancestral name being McAuliffe. In modern times the name is still mostly found in the south-western part of Munster Province.
The McAuliffe 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 McAuliffe descendants.
