Origin of the Name Peal

The Peal family history was found in the archives. A sept or clan was a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. This name is numerous in Counties Tyrone and Derry which is the original homeland of the sept. We first find them in the Hearth Money Rolls of 1659 and it is noted as one of the principal Irish names in the Barony of Loughinsholin around the same time. This area is the part of County Derry adjoining County Tyrone. Some of the sept followed Rory O'Donnell to Connacht in 1603 in the persons of Dermot and Manus MacPeake. The MacPeake family of Belfast are noteable for their activities in Irish Traditional music and the place-name Ballymacpeake perpetuates their family. The first recording of the name in England was in the year 1379 in the person of an Isabella del Pek, from Yorkshire.
The Peal 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 Peal descendants.
