This work deals with the origins of fifty of the best-known surnames of County Cork and traces their early history down to 1700. Many of the families featured never had their story related in detail before now; particulars of others are accessible only in books long out of print or in learned journals not readily available to the public. Each name is treated in a separate article. Special attention is given to the location of early family seats, such as castles, parishes and townlands occupied by or associated with the various families throughout the county.
