THE McConroy or King family is descended from Milesius, King of Spain, through the line of his son Heber. The founder of the family was Gno More of the line of Cormac Cas, son of Olliol Ollum, King of Munster, A. D. 177, and Sabia, daughter of Con of the Hundred Battles, A. D. 148. The ancient name was Conray and signifies “Con the King.” The possessions of the sept were located in the present Counties of Cork, Limerick, and Tipperary. Some members of this family Anglicized the name to King from the ancient name, meaning son of Con the King.
