Origin of the Name Magner

The ancient history of the name Magner was found in the archives. Variants of Magner include Magnel. This name in Irish is Maingneir and the latter variants are the anglicized forms of this. This sept came from County Cork .
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.
This septs territory was Castlemagner in County Cork , formerly known as Magnelstown. They have been on record from the 13th century as evidenced by the Justiciary Rolls and other ancient documents. From the 16th century it changed from Magnel to Magner and is numerous in the Tudor Fiants. In the following century they are listed as one of the principal Irish names in the Barony of Kilmore and Orrery, County Cork and a few years earlier one of the name was transplanted from Cork to Connacht.
The Magner 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 Magner descendants.
