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

The surname Loghry comes from the original Irish sept name O Leoghain. It has sometimes been unusually mistranslated into Duck, the Irish word for duck being "lacha" which bears only a slight similarity to the original. The surname sometimes appears as Logan, but in many cases, especially in Ulster, this name is of Scottish descendent, brought to Ireland by the plantations.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Lohan, O'Lohan, Loughan, Loghan, Logan, Duck and others.

First found in County Westmeath (Irish: An Iarmhí) in the Irish Midlands, province of Leinster, where it belonged to the sept whose chiefs were lords of Gailenga Mor, now Morgallion. The annals tell the story of how the men of Teffia (County Meath) slew Cuan O Lothchain, the chief poet of King Malachy II, in 1024 and died miraculously as retribution. Maurice O'Loughan was Bishop of Kilmacduagh from 1254 to 1283. The prominent members of the O Leochain sept were driven across the river Shannon by the Anglo-Norman invasion.

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: Hoc majorum virtus
Motto Translation: This is the valour of my ancestors.
