Origin, Meaning, Family History and Mcguire Coat of Arms and Family Crest

Meaning, Origin, Etymology
Maguire (pronounced: /məˈɡwaɪər/ mə-GWIRE) this surname is also commonly spelled MacGuire or McGuire.  It is an Irish surname that is from the Gaelic Mag Uidhir, which means the “son of Odhar” or “son of the dun or dark coloured one.”  Maguires/MacGuire/McGuires were Kings of Fermanagh from the 13th to the 17th centuries. They possessed the entire County of Fermanagh and it was known as Maguire’s Country from 1250 A.D. to the reign of King James VI.  At that time their lands were confiscated just like many other parts of Ulster. The Maguires/MacGuires/McGuires supplied Chiefs or Princes to Fermanagh throughout their reign. These families were first mentioned in the Annals around 956 A.D. and have been close with other Septs of Ulster such as the O’Neill and O’Donnell septs.  From these unions several well-known branches which became septs with their own rights. Among them can be found MacManus, MacCaffrey, MacHugh and many others. The McGuire Royal Family (Maguidhirs) lived in the McGuire (Maguidhir) castle in Enniskillen. The origins of the island town of Enniskillen go back to prehistory when this short nexus was the main highway between Ulster and Connaught.  Enniskillen Castle was the medieval seat of the McGuire (Maguidhir), chieftains of Fermanagh, who policed the lough with a private navy of 1500 boats. Nearby is Maguiresbridge. At the castle, the King heard wind of a large army that had been sent to attack. Fearing the loss of all his clan, he sent half of his people to the northwest of Scotland, who adopted the surname of MacQuarrie. In Scotland the surname of MacQuarrie means son of Guaire or Godfrey.  Guaire was a son of Alpin, King of Scotland.
