The surname McGlowry is derived from the patronymic Irish Gaelic name "O Labhradha," where "Labraidh" means "spokesman."

McGlowry Early Origins



The surname McGlowry was first found in north-east Ulster (Irish: Ulaidh), where the sept originated. In the Middle Ages, their territory was around Moira in County Down. References from Lecale in 1447 state that Donatus MacGlory "held a bishop's court before the O'Neill and the Savage." In Swayne's Register, another member of the clergy was listed in the Archdiocese of Armagh in 1436 by the name of MacGlory or MacClory.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Virtus semper viridis
Motto Translation: Virtue is always flourishing.
