MALLOY Family HistoryRecorded as Maloy, Malloy, Molloy and Mulloy, but more correctly with the O' prefix, this is a famous Irish clan surname. It usually originates from the pre 10th century Old Gaelic name O'Maolmhuidh, meaning the descendant of the Great Chief. The first chief it is said, was descended from Niall of the Nine Hostages, the 4th century High King of Ireland, and the sept which took its name from him ruled over Fercal, a district covering several baronies of County Offaly. Many of this notable family had friendly relations with the English crown, and the name is recorded as O'Mulmoy in early English records.
