An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The Haughey surname is derived from the Gaelic Ó hEachaidh, or descendant of Eachaidh, an old Irish byname meaning "horseman."
The Middle Ages saw a great number of spelling variations for surnames common to the Irish landscape. One reason for these variations is the fact that surnames were not rigidly fixed by this period. The following variations for the name Haughey were encountered in the archives: Haughie, Haughy, Haughey and others.
First found in Counties Donegal and Armagh (Irish: Ard Mhacha) located in the province of Ulster in present day Northern Ireland, in Northern Ireland where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Death and immigration greatly reduced Ireland's population in the 19th century. For the native Irish people poverty, hunger, and racial prejudice was common. Therefore, thousands left their homeland to seek opportunity in North America. Those who survived the journey and the quarantine camps to which they arrived, were instrumental towards building the strong developing nations of the United States and the future Canada. By far, the largest influx of Irish settlers occurred with Great Potato Famine during the late 1840s. These were employed as construction or factory workers. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has shown early immigrants bearing the name Haughey:

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Iterum iterumque
Motto Translation: Again and again.
