Loane History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The surname Loane is an Anglicization of O Luain. Lambe is a very popular variant of Loane, especially among the scattered O Luain sept of Limerick. The name Lambe also came to Ireland through Cromwellian and other settlers from England.

Early Origins of the Loane family

The surname Loane was first found in County Limerick, and in the ancient territory of Oriel, the two places in which two separate septs of the same name existed. The chiefs of the O Luain sept of Limerick were lords of Deisbeg, but were dispersed throughout Munster after the Anglo- Norman invasion. The O Luain sept of Oriel in the north were scattered as well.
