McCran History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the McCran family

The surname McCran was first found in Leitrim (Irish: Liatroim) anciently the western half of the kingdom of Breifne, located in Northeastern Ireland, in Leinster province, where they held a family seat as a descendant of Billrian, a chief of the Heber line of Kings, descended from Daire Cearb, brother of Lughaidh, a King of Munster. Irish history, after the Norman Conquest of England, was strongly influenced by the invasion of Strongbow in 1172, almost equal to the enormous Irish cultural impact on England Scotland, Wales 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.
