Origin of the Name Boylan

The Boylan family history was found in the archives. Boylan and Boyan are Irish names derived from a Gaelic sept of Oriel, which arose originally from the same stock as the O'Flanagans of Fermanagh who were in early medieval times located in a widespread territory stretching from Fermanagh to Louth. Later they were reduced by the McMahons, but still retained the greater part of the Barony of Daltry in County Monaghan. O'Dugan in his fourteenth century 'Topographical Poem' praises them for their horsemanship and comments on their blue eyes, calling them 'the bold Kings of Dartry'. They are still more numerous in the Monaghan, Cavan and Meath area than elsewhere. In Gaelic the name is O' Baoigheallain.
The Boylan 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 Boylan descendants.
