Conn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Dalriadan kingdom of ancient Scotland was the home of the ancestors of the Conn family. Their name indicates that they lived in Aberdeen (part of the modern Grampian region). The Conn family name dates back to medieval times, when a prominent Roman Catholic family of the name Con, or Cone, of Auchry lived in the parish of Monquhitter.

Early Origins of the Conn family


The surname Conn was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat from very ancient times.

Migration of the Conn family to the New World and Oceana


The descendants of the Dalriadan families who made the great crossing of the Atlantic still dot communities along the east coast of the United States and Canada. In the American War of Independence, many of the settlers traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Clan societies and highland games have allowed Canadian and American families of Scottish descent to recover much of their lost heritage. Investigation of the origins of family names on the North American continent has revealed that early immigrants bearing the name Conn or a variant listed above include:
