The surname of QUINN is the most numerous name in County Tyrone. The Irish O’Cuinn is from the personal name Conn. Early records of the name mention Mac Cuinn, 1027 Ireland and Maghnus Mac Cuinn is mentioned in the Annals of Loch Ce among the leading men killed at the battle of Desert-creagh in 1281, which resulted in a victory for the Cenel Eoghain over the Cenel Conaill. Most of these of course were Ulsterman. Ireland is one of the earliest sources of the development of patronymic names in northern Europe. Irish Clan or bynames can be traced back to the 4th century B.C. and Mac (son of) and O (grandson or ancestor of) evolved from this base, the original literal meaning of which has been lost due to the absence of written records and linguistic ambivalences which subtly but inexorably became adopted through usage. Genealogists and lexographers accept that the patronymic base does not refer to a location, quite the contrary.
The use of the prefix ‘Bally’ (town of) attaching to the base name, identifying the location. The base root was also adopted by people residing in the demographic area without a common ancestor. These groups called ‘Septs’ were specially prevalent in Ireland. The first Normans arrived in
Ireland in the 12th and 13th centuries to form an alliance with the King of Leinster. Under Elizabeth I in the 16th century, settlers from England established themselves around Dublin, then under English control and Presbyterian Scots emigrated to Ulster, introducing English and Scottish roots. This is the name of an ancient Irish family, whose forebears were once chiefs of the clan
Heffernan. One of their earliest recorded ancestors is Donogh Quin, living in 1551. They are unusual in being one of the few Celtic families in the peerage, holding the titles Earl of Dunraven and Mountearl. It has long been a matter of doubt when the bearing of coats of arms first became hereditary and it was not until the Crusades that Heraldry came into general use. Men went into battle heavily armed and were difficult to recognise. It became the custom for them to adorn their helmets with distinctive crests, and to paint their shields with animals and the like. Coats of arms accompanied the development of surnames, becoming hereditary in the same way.

Meaning of the Scotland name Barco is boatman or boat builder
Barco surname as we know them today were first assumed in Europe from the 11th to the 15th Century. They were not in use in England or in Scotland before the Norman Conquest, and were first found in the Domesday Book. The employment in the use of a second name was a custom that was first introduced from the Normans. They themselves had not long before adopted them. It
became, in course of time, a mark of gentler blood, and it was deemed a disgrace for gentlemen to have but one single name, as the meaner sort had. It was not until the reign of Edward II (1307-
1327) it became general practice amongst all people. BENSON was a baptismal name ‘the son of Bennet’, an ancient although now forgotten personal name.This medieval given name owes its popularity in the Middle Ages chiefly to St. Benedict (480-550) who founded the Benedictine order of monks at Monte Cassino and wrote a monastic rule that formed a model for all subsequent rules. No doubt the meaning of the Latin work also contributed to its popularity as a given name, especially in Romance countries in the 12th century. The Latin form of the name is found in England alongside versions derived from the Old French form Beneit, Benoit, which was common among the Normans. The bulk of European surnames in countries such as England and France were formed in the 13th and 14th centuries. The process started earlier and continued in some places into the 19th century, but the norm is that in the 11th century people did not have surnames, whereas by the 15th century they did.Early records mention Germanus Benson, listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Thomas Benson was the rector of Houghton, County Norfolk, in the year 1559. Mary Benson, daughter of Nathaniel Benson, was baptised at St. Michael, Cornhill, London in 1611. George Stokes married Agnes Benson at St. Jame’s, Clerkenwell, London in the year 1611. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the
battlefield and in tournaments. With his helmet covering his face, and armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification for his followers, was the insignia painted on his shield and embroidered on his surcoat, the flowing and draped garment worn over the armour. The associated coat of arms is recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in

The surname of SIMMS was a baptismal name ‘the son of Simon’. Following the crusades in Europe in the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries, a need was felt for a family name to replace the one given at birth, or in addition to it. This was recognized by those of noble birth, and particularly by those who went on the Crusades, as it added prestige and practical advantage to their status Early records of the name mention Ralph Simme who was documented in the year 1317 in County Kent. Robert Symmes of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379 and Edward Syms appears in County Lancashire in the year 1400. Later instances of the name mention Christopher Sims who registered at Oxford University in 1594. Louis Baumes married Margaret Sim at St. George’s, Hanover Square London in 1800.
The name was taken to Scotland by early settlers and Sym Clerk witnessed a charter in 1446. Andrew Sym was the vicar of Comrie in 1530, and Henry Sim was constable in the parish of Auchtramuchtie in 1633. James Syme (1799-1870) the eminent surgeon was born in Fife. The forms Simon and Simeon were in use as given names in Western Europe from the Middle Ages onwards. However the former was more popular, no doubt because of its association with the apostle Simon Peter, the brother of Andrew. In Britain there was confusion from an early date with the Anglo-Scandinavian forms of Sigmund, whose popularity was reinforced at the Conquest of
1066, by the Norman form of Simund. In many parts of central and western Europe, hereditary surnames began to become fixed at around the 12th century, and have developed and changed slowly over the years. As society became more complex, and such matters as the management of tenure, and in particular the collection of taxes were delegated to special functionaries, it became imperative to distinguish a more complex system of nomenclature to differentiate one individual from another.
The associated arms are recorded in Sir Bernard Burkes General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in
ARMS – Gules on a chevron argent between two mullets pierced or and a halbert in base of the last a boars head erased between two hands issuing from the dexter and sinister sides of the shield each
The surname of YOUNTS was an occupational name ‘the yeoman’ of some estate or an attendant in a noble house. The name later came to mean a freeholder under the rank of gentleman. A man who owned free land of forty shillings annual value in the 14th century, one who was able to serve on a jury, vote for his knight or shire. During the reign of Henry VII yeomen were appointed as his personal bodyguards, and they now act chiefly as warders of the Tower of London. The name is also spelt YEMON, YHOMAN, ZEMAN, YEOMANS and YOEMAN. Early records of the name mention William Zeman, 1296, County Essex. John Yemon was recorded in County Lancashire in the year 1332. Henricus Yhoman, of Yorkshire, was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Surnames as we know them today were first assumed in Europe from the 11th to the 15th Century.

who were married at St. Dionis Backchurch, London in the year 1539. Nicholas Sperrynge married Ellen Yeomans, St. Michael, Cornhill, London in 1582. Fraunce Yoeman of Oxford, registered at Oxford University in 1596. Thomas Yeoman and Hannah Neale were married at St. George’s Chapel, Mayfair, London in 1781. In the Middle Ages heraldry came into use as a practical matter. It originated in the devices used to distinguish the armoured warriors in tournament and war, and was also placed on seals as marks of identity. As far as records show, true heraldry began in the middle of the 12th century, and appeared almost simultaneously in several countries of Western Europe.

This Hungarian surname of YANTZ was originally derived from the Hebrew given name YOCJANAN (Jehovah has favoured me with a son), and the name was adopted into the Latin (via Greek) as JOHANNES. This name has enjoyed enormous popularity in Europe, being given in honour of St. John the Baptist, precursor of Christ and of St. John the Evangelist, author of the fourth gospel, as well as others of the nearly one thousand saints of the name. There are numerous variant spellings of the surname, and it is known to every country in the world in different forms which include YANKOV, YANSHONOK, YANUK, YANUKHIN, YANYUSHKIN,
YANTSUREV, YANYSHEV and YANSHINOV to name but a few. There have been many notables of the name including twenty-one popes and two anti-popes XVI (997-8) and XXIII the former included in the papal numbering, which erroneously contained a fictitious John XV who was thought to have ruled for a few weeks immediately prior to the true John (985-96). The Hungarian language is quite distinct from its Germanic and Slavonic neighbours, and is of Finno-Ugric rather than European origin, and so it is related to Finnish. However, the strongest cultural influence in historical times has been German, and the pattern of Hungarian surnames is similar to that found in Germany and Austria. In the 19th century, surnames ending in ‘Y’ came to be considered more aristocratic than those ending in ‘I’, although it has been shown that the alternation between these two letters depended on the whim of a clerk, and had no connection with rank. A notable member of the name is Alexander YANKOV, born 22nd June 1924. He has been the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the People’s Republic of Bulgaria to the United Nations since 1976; Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, Bulgaria, since 1976. Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their surname as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God. However much the individual may have liked or disliked the surname, they were stuck with it, and people rarely changed them by personal choice. A more common form of variation was in fact involuntary, when an official change was made, in other words, a clerical error.
