Where did the Irish Convery family come from? What is the Irish Convery family crest and coat of arms? When did the Convery family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Convery family history?

The surname Convery is derived from the old Gaelic personal name Ainmhire, meaning freedom from levity or madness. The names Convery and Hanbury, and their variants, have this same origin. Typically, the Irish surname Mac Ainmhire is anglicized as Convery, and the surname O hAinmhire, as Hanbury. The name Hanbury also came to Ireland during the English settlements of the 17th century, and can be of English toponymic origin, from the place in Staffordshire.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Pro fide, rege, et patria pugno
Motto Translation: I fight for faith, king and country.
