Conaughton Early Origins



The surname Conaughton was first found in Donegal (Irish: Dún na nGall), northwest Ireland in the province of Ulster, sometimes referred to as County Tyrconnel, where they held a family seat in the barony of Banagh. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable. This family name was traced as being descended from the Princes of Tyrone through Aodh Anrachan, a younger brother of Donal an Togdhamh through the MacSweeney line.
