Gloyn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Gloyn family

The surname Gloyn was first found in Munster, where they held a family seat as being directly descended through the O'Briens, the Clancys from King Brian Boru, who died at Clontarf in 1014. The English and Scottish influence on Irish history after the Norman Conquest of England almost equaled the enormous Irish culturaL impact on their own history long before the Conquest from the 1st to 7th centuries. Many clans, tribal names were intermixed and family groupings became almost indistinguishable.
