Origin of the Name Madigan

The ancient history of the name Madigan was found in the archives. Variants of Madigan include Madden, O'Madden and McAvaddy. This Irish Sept, called O'Madagain, was a branch of the Hy Many, whose territory was in County Galway in the West of the country. Their Chief was Lord of that territory and after the Angl-Norman Invasion retained his Lordship under the De Burgos. In modern times the Maddens are still numerous in that area. In the heyday of landlordism, prior to the Land Acts, the families estates, principally in Mayo, Leitrim and Fermanagh, comprised some 25,000 acres. A Madden family of English origin is also found in Ireland , and gave their name to the village of Maddenton, in County Kildare.
The Madigan 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 Madigan descendants.
