MALLON Family History

Recorded in several forms including Mallon, Mellon, Mellon, and Malan, this interesting name is of Irish origin. It is a development of the popular O' Malone, from the pre 10th century Gaelic surname O' maoil Eoin. This translates as 'The descendant of the devotee or follower of St. John'. The Malone's are an ancient sept, closely associated with the O'Connors of Connacht, and as such the principle family connected with the abbey of Clonmacnois, to which they provided many abbots and bishops. Unlike most old Irish septs, modern namebearers are not numerous in the territory of their origin, and Counties Clare and Wexford now have more Malones than in other areas...
