Origin of the Name McCrory

The ancient history of the name McCrory was found in the archives. Variants of the Gaelic name McCrory include McRory, McCrorie and Rogers. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, as evidenced by the Tudor Fiants and by the census of 1659 and other records, this name was both numerous and ubiquitous. In modern times it is relatively rare. The true Gaelic sept of MacRuaidhri, from which these names are derived, belongs properly to County Tyrone. A branch of this sept was established in County Derry where they became erenaghs of Ballynascreen in the barony of Loughlinsholin. Cardinal McRory, 1861-1945, was of this sept.
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.
Descendants of McRory are still found in Counties Tyrone and in County Leitrim, while McCrory and McGrory are mostly found in parts of Ulster. In the fourteenth century some families of the name came to Ulster from Scotland as Gallowglasses.
The McCrory 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 McCrory descendants.
