Origin of the Name Maher

The Maher family history was found in the archives. Meaning 'kindly', variants of the name Maher include Meagher and Marr. These families are of the same stock as the O'Carrolls of Ely and belong to the Barony of Ikerrin in County Tipperary. Their territory was around Roscrea, at the foot of the 'Devils Bit' Mountain. They were one of ten Irish Septs that held their ground when the Norman invaders arrived and remained in possession alongside the Ormond Butlers. In modern times they are still found in County Tipperary. A famous bearer of the name was Captain John Meagher, an adventurous rapparee of the seventeenth century who was captured and hanged in 1690. Thomas Francis Meagher, 1823-1867, was one of the prominent Young Ireland ers.
The Maher 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 Maher descendants.
