Origin of the Name Tallon

The ancient history of the name Tallon was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. The 'Talun' sept from which the name Tallon is derived were located in Leinster Province.
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.
These families arrived with the Anglo-Norman invasion of Ireland and have been influential in 'The Pale' for many centuries. They first held their territory in Nurney, County Carlow and by the fourteenth century had become Hibernicized and become Chiefs known as 'English but Rebels'. By the fifteenth century they had spread to County Dublin and by the sixteenth century had again spread to Dublin, Meath and Louth. In Meath they became a family of importance where the placename Cloontytallun bears testament to the family. In the seventeenth century Tallon was among the principal Irish names in County Louth, and especially in the Barony of Dundalk.
The Tallon 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 Tallon descendants.
