Origin of the Name Conway

The ancient history of the name Conway was found in the archives. Meaning 'of Conway', this is a name that has originated as a surname from a Welsh town and an Irish sept. The first on record in England was a John Connyway who was baptised in Saint James, Clerkenwell, in the year 1561, and a John Conaway and Barbara Burt, were married in the same church in the year 1584. In Ireland the MacConways belonged to Thomond and were a sept of great importance until the fourteenth century. Another sept was located in the Parish of Easky, Sligo, called O'Conway. In County Mayo we have the sept of O'Connmhachain of the same stock as the O'Haras, whose name, first anglicized as O'Conoughan, has now been corrupted to Conway.
The Conway 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 Conway descendants.
