Origin of the Name Hogan

The Hogan family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Hogan include O'Hogan. Meaning 'young', this sept descends from the tenth century King of Ireland , Brian Boru. They were Dalcassian people whose territory was in Counties Clare and Limerick . They spread across to County Tipperary, where the Chieftain had his fortress at Nenagh, but as time went on they lost their lands under the Cromwellian regime, only to have some re-granted by King Charles II. In 1691 the famous Galloping Hogan was the hero of Sarsfields destruction of the Williamite siege train at Ballyneety. A most famous bearer of the name was John Hogan, 1800-1858, an Irish sculptor of international repute.
The Hogan 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 Hogan descendants.
