The surname is one of those rare Irish names that is derived from a place name; in this case, from Corballis. Corballis is derived from the Gaelic "cor baile," which means "odd or twisted towland." This most likely refers to the shape of the land in this region. Today there are several places named Corbally in Ireland, in Counties Limerick, Tipperary, and Waterford.

Corballis Early Origins



The surname Corballis was first found in Dublin (Irish: Áth Cliath) located on the east coast of Ireland in the province of Leinster, where they held a family seat in the barony of Balrothery. 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 found later in Tallaght and Saggart where they represented the first recorded reference to the name. This is a name which is derived from a place name. The name was found later in County Louth.
