Where did the Irish Scullion family come from? What is the Irish Scullion family crest and coat of arms? When did the Scullion family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Scullion family history?

Many Irish names are English translations of Gaelic names. The name Scullion was a translation of the Gaelic name O Scolaidhe, which means student.


The recording of names in Ireland in the Middle Ages was an inconsistent endeavor at best due to competing dialects and languages, and the general illiteracy of the population. Research into the name Scullion revealed many spelling variations, including Scully, Scally, O'Scully and others.

First found in county Westmeath (Irish: An Iarmhí) in the Irish Midlands, province of Leinster, where they held a family seat from very early times.
