This McLoughry surname is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "Luachra," derived from the word "luachair," which means "rushes" or "sedges."

McLoughry Early Origins



The surname McLoughry was first found in Armagh (Irish: Ard Mhacha) located in the province of Ulster in present day Northern Ireland, where they held a family seat as ecclesiastics in west Armagh and Antrim. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable. This family name was found later in Tyrone about 1430.
