Early Origins of the Tarrence family
The surname Tarrence was first found in Leinster
, where they held a family seat
as chiefs of Hy-Cinselagh. Irish history, after the Norman Conquest
, was strongly influenced by the invasion of Strongbow
in 1172, almost equal to the enormous Irish cultural impact on England Scotland
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. This family name was found later in Armagh and Down to the north where the name also became a Christian Name.
