Origin of the Name Furlong

The ancient history of the name Furlong was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The name Furlong is often of English origin and is derived from the word 'furlong' meaning 'unenclosed field'. From England families of the name settled throughout Scotland , Wales and Ireland , where they are on record as early as the thirteenth century. An early record can be found in County Wexford in the year 1343, when eleven Furlongs took part in a military exhibition against O'Brien of Thomond. Since then families of the name have been influential in Counties Wexford and Kilkenny. Furlongstown is named after these families in County Wexford with their principal seat being located at Horetown. Bearers of the name have been notable as poets, three whom were Thomas Furlong (1794-1827), Mary Furlong 91868-1898) and Alice Furlong (1870-1945).
The Furlong 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 Furlong descendants.
