Origin of the Name McCormack

The origin of the name McCormack was found in the archives. Meaning 'charioteer', variants of the name McCormack include McCormick. This surname has come into existence in Ireland in many places. There was a minor sept of the name located in County Longford and other septs called O'Cormack and O'Cormacan that were located in Counties Roscommon, Galway, Clare, Cork, Down and Derry.
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.
McCormacks are recorded as leading gentry in County Cork, and one was influential enough to raise a force to assist Desmond in the Elizabethan Wars. The ancient manuscript 'The Four Masters' records the deaths of several prominent MacCormacks located in County Fermanagh, the last of these died in 1431. The MacCormacks of Armagh were descendants of these.
The McCormack 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 McCormack descendants.
