Origin of the Name Corrigan

The ancient history of the name Corrigan was found in the archives.
Over the centuries Surnames developed a wide number of variants. Different spellings of the same name can be traced back to an original root. Additionally when a bearer of a name emigrated it was not uncommon that their original name would be incorrectly transcribed in the record books at their new location. Surnames were also often altered over the years based on how they sounded phonetically and depending on the prevailing political conditions it may have been advantageous to change a name from one language to another.
Variants of the name Corrigan
include Carrigan, O'Corrigan, Corridon, Corrodan and Corridan. This name is O'Corragain in Irish . The sept belongs primarily to Fermanagh being of the same stock as the Maguires. Descendants of the name are still found in that part of Ulster, but the name today is very scattered, being found in most Counties. In the 1659 census Corrigan and O'Corrigan are among the more numerous Irish names in Offaly, Longford and Fermanagh. The place called Ballycorrigan is near Nenagh in County Tipperary, indicating that a leading family of Corrigan was seated there not later than the middle of the seventeenth century. Currigan and Courigan are other variants found in Connaught.
The Corrigan 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 Corrigan descendants.
