Docherty Family Crest The Irish surname Docherty is of patronymic origin. The Docherty's are named after Dochartach, the 12th in linear descent from Conall Gulban (d. AD 455), the son of the famous Niall of the Nine Hostages (Niall Noigíallach) the 5th Century High King of Ireland, and namesake of the powerful Uí Néill dynasty. Through Niall, the Dochertys can trace their heritage back even further, making the clan one of Europe’s longest descent lines. The name is primarily found in county Donegal and surrounding areas.
