Where did the Irish Henaghan family come from? What is the Irish Henaghan family crest and coat of arms? When did the Henaghan family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Henaghan family history?

The Irish name Henaghan originally appeared in Gaelic as "O hEanain," but sometimes is an abbreviated form of the surname Henagahn.


The recording of names in Ireland during the Middle Ages was an inconsistent endeavor at best. Since the general population did not know how to read or write, they could only specify how their names should be recorded orally. Research into the name Henaghan revealed spelling variations, including Heenan, Henaghan, Henehan, Heenon, Hanegan, Hannegan, Hanigan, Hannigan, Haneghan and many more.

First found in County Tipperary (Irish: Thiobraid Árann), established in the 13th century in South-central Ireland, in the province of Munster, and Offaly where they held a family seat from ancient times.
