Surnames of Irish origin have experienced many changes in their spellings and forms. Before being translated into English, MacNemmerd appeared as Mac Conmara, which means "hound of the sea" or "warrior of the sea."

Early Origins of the MacNemmerd family


The surname MacNemmerd was first found in County Clare (Irish: An Clįr) located on the west coast of Ireland in the province of Munster, where MacConmara or MacNamara was chief of the territory of Clan Caisin, now the barony of Tullagh. The family was also sometimes styled chiefs of Clan Cuilean; derived from Cuilean, one of their chiefs in the eighth century. This ancient family have traditionally held the high office of hereditary marshals of Thomond.

Irish families fled the English-colonized Ireland in record numbers during the 19th century for North America. Many of those destitute families died from disease during, and even shortly after, the long journey.
