Family history, by legend and documents say my O’Cain (Caithain) forebears were from Coeraine N> Ireland, defeated the O’Connors at one time and allied withthe O’Neills…probably by marriage as well as by Clan, The coat of arms was on silver, with large oak tree and three red fish. Motto was old latin: a stroked cat is gennle.
The headdress with closed helmet was of a wild cat holding a red glove..or the hand of ULSTER!!
