Origin of the Name Hoban

The ancient history of the name Hoban was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The name Hoban in Gaelic is O'hUbain and both Hoban and Hobban are the anglicized forms of this. This sept came from County Mayo where they were a branch of the Ulster Cenel Eoghain who settled in Mayo.
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.
References to the name prior to the seventeenth century include that relating to a David O'Hubane of Burrishoole, who was a cleric in the year 1584. A Shane O'Howbane, of Togher, was recorded as a carpenter in the year 1592. There are several mentions of the name in the 'Book of Survey and Distribution for County Mayo'. In the Hearth Money Rolls of 1665, in County Tipperary, there are five families of the name recorded. Mayo is the County in which the name is chiefly found to this very day.
The Hoban 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 Hoban descendants.
