About Milo de Cogan

Goggin Origin

The Goggin name is Celtic in origin and goes back to the parish of Cogan which is in the diocese of Llandaff, in Glamorganshire, Wales.[1] Goggin Surname History and Origin The earliest reference is to Emma de Cogan (possibly mother of Milo, Richard and Geoffrey), c.1138.

The first of the family to arrive in Ireland was the famous Milo de Cogan who came to Ireland as Strongbow's right-hand man in the Anglo-Norman Invasion of 1169. The first arms for de Cogan were "Gules, 3 lozenges, argent" and their geometric design and colours indicate close relationships with the FitzGeralds and de Barrys. Near to Cogan village the de Sumeris (from Sommery near Dieppe) held land. Their proximity to the Norman court at Rouen and the de Cogans being part of the household of the Earl of Gloucester may hint to the same genesis. The Goggin coat of arms derives from that of Milo de Cogan. Goggin is a polygenetic name (more than one origin). Whilst about 50% are lineal descendants of the Norman de Cogans of Glamorganshire the rest would be of another haplotype at least one family are M222 (N.West Irish modal). Recent studies of the families reputed to descend from the Three Colls show that a family of Goggins were possibly MacCalkins who had their name changed owing to poor translations from the Irish language. A result from a DNA study shows that one Goggin family has a 12/12 match with "Norman" or de Cogan DNA.
