Early Origins of the larrison family
The surname larrison was first found in County Mayo
(Irish: Maigh Eo) located on the West coast of the Republic of Ireland
in the province of Connacht
, where they held a family seat
as chiefs descended from the great Hy Fiachrach, a group of tribes claiming descent from King Niall of the Nine Hostages. Irish history, after the Norman Conquest
, was strongly influenced by the invasion of Strongbow
in 1172, almost equal to the enormous Irish cultural impact on England Scotland
and the whole of Europe before the Norman Conquest
from the 1st to 7th centuries. Many Irish clanns, sept names were intermixed and family groupings became almost indistinguishable. The Larrissey also branched to Kilkenny.
