HickeyThe great Gaelic family Hickey emerged in later years in County Clare.  The Hickeys anciently descended from King Brian Boru who died in Clontarf in 1410, were physicians to their sister Clann, the O'Brien's, and were kinsmen of the McNamara's and the O'Kennedy's.  They branched into Northern Tipperary and to Limerick by the 13th and 14th centuries, and were noted more as a scholarly group rather than the ancient warriors of Munster.  Soon after the Cromwellian invasion they branched to England and acquired estates at Billing in the county of North Hampton.  Their more recent family seat was at Kilelton.  Notable amongst the family at this time was John and Thomas Hickey, famous as Irish sculptor and portrait painter.
