Manning (aka Mannion, Manning) is a family name.


Origin and meaning

Ó Mannin (anglicized Mannion) is the name of a Galway family who were formerly chiefs of Soghain (in what is now Ireland), a district nearly co-extensive with the barony of Tiaquin. Ó Mannin, King of Soghain, is mentioned in the Chronicon Scotorum in the year 1135, and a latter chief died at the Second Battle of Athenry in 1316.

They continued to form a distinct clan down to the time of James I of England. The chief resided at Menlough Castle, in the parish of Killascobe, Galway. In 1617, Aedh Ó Mannin (Hugh O'Mannin) surrendered his estates, but a small portion of it was restored under the Act of Settlement in 1676 where the name is still common in Galway and Roscommon, and has spread into other parts of Ireland.[1]
