Origin of the Name Sothern

The ancient history of the name Sothern was found in the archives. The O'Connells are a Kerry sept whose genealogy is traced back to Eremonian Aengus Tuirmeach who was High King of Ireland about 180 B.C. The powerful O'Donoghues pushed them towards the Atlantic coast in the eleventh century where they became hereditary castellans of Ballycarbery under the MacCarthy Mor Chiefs. At the time of the Cromwellian regime the head of the Sept was transplanted to County Clare where a branch has remained ever since. The barony of Magunihy is still the homeland of the leading family, whose representative is Sir Morgan O'Connell. Daniel O'Connell, 1775-1847, was known as 'The Liberator', and his monument is to be found in Derrynane in County Kerry.
The Sothern 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 Sothern descendants.
