CONNAUGHTON Family History

This very unusual and interesting surname is of Irish origin, and is derived from the Gaelic "O Connachtain", of uncertain etymology. Traditionally, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes, or from some illustrious warrior, and are usually prefixed by "O", meaning "grandson or descendant of", or "Mac", denoting "son of ". This was the name of an important sept originally located in the north of County Sligo, where they were of importance, as we know from the Annals and other sources for medieval times.
