Lohan History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The surname Lohan comes from the original Irish sept name O Leoghain. It has sometimes been unusually mistranslated into Duck, the Irish word for duck being "lacha" which bears only a slight similarity to the original. The surname sometimes appears as Logan, but in many cases, especially in Ulster, this name is of Scottish descendent, brought to Ireland by the plantations.

Early Origins of the Lohan family

The surname Lohan was first found in County Westmeath (Irish: An Iarmhí) in the Irish Midlands, province of Leinster, where it belonged to the sept whose chiefs were lords of Gailenga Mor, now Morgallion. The annals tell the story of how the men of Teffia (County Meath) slew Cuan O Lothchain, the chief poet of King Malachy II, in 1024 and died miraculously as retribution. Maurice O'Loughan was Bishop of Kilmacduagh from 1254 to 1283. The prominent members of the O Leochain sept were driven across the river Shannon by the Anglo-Norman invasion.
