    Notes 
    • «b»Athy
      «/b»
      No records exist for Galway prior to the date of the Anglo-Norman invasion; among the earliest preserved the name Athy appears as a leading family in that city. It subsequently became one of the "Tribes of Galway", * which appellation, according to Hardiman, was invented as a term of opprobrium by the Cromwellian forces who regarded unfavourably the close bond of friendship and relationship between the chief families of the city, and it was afterwards adopted by them as a mark of distinction. Nevertheless the first time the name Athy comes into prominence in the history of the city is (c. 1320) as a party to a series of deadly disputes between the Blakes and the Athys in which the Athys were worsted. They were never comparable in influence with the more powerful of the Tribes, but several of them held important posts, e.g., William de Athy, Treasurer of Connacht 1388. The surname Athy, now scarce, is a type which is common in most countries but very rare in Ireland, being formed from a place name. The Athys were of Norman stock, settled at Athy, Co. Kildare (the Red Book of Ormond records two tenants named de Athy in Co. Kildare in 1311) whence they soon migrated to Galway.
