Origin of the Name Carew

The ancient history of the name Carew was found in the archives. The Gaelic name Carew has a number of variants including Carewe, McCarron, O'Carron and Caron. These names are the anglicized forms of the 'de Carrun' sept that was originally of Norman origin. These names became prominent in Ireland after the twelfth century Norman invasion led by the famous Strongbow. Several of the Norman families became 'hibernicized' and formed septs along Gaelic lines.
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 original Norman form of the name was 'de Carron'. Carew and its variants have for centuries been associated with Counties Tipperary, Cork, Carlow and Mayo. From Ireland these names spread to England , Wales and Scotland in early times and from there out to the new world of America, Canada and beyond.
The Carew 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 Carew descendants.
