THE McMore family is descended from Milesius, King of Spain, through the line of his son Heber. The founders of the family were Fiacha Baiceada, son of Cathire More, King of Ireland, A. D. 144, and Dirmuid Na Nagall, King of Leinster, A. D. 1170, of the line of Heremon. The ancient name was More and signifies “Chief.” The possessions of the sept were located in the present County of Kildare.
