The town of Carrickfergus has been in existence since medieval times. The earliest known name for the area was Dun-so-barky, meaning strong rock or hill. Then, in the sixth century, Fergus Mor, the son of Eric of Armoy, left Ulster to found a kingdom in Scotland but was drowned on his return. Reputedly buried at Monkstown, Newtownabbey, the area was thereafter variously called Carriag na Ferg, Krag, Carriag, Knock, Krag Fergus, and of course, Carraig Fhearghus, meaning rock of Fergus. In 1169, Richard de Clare, Earl of Pembroke, was dispatched by Henry II to aid the king of Leinster, and the Norman settlement of Ireland began. Eight years later, the Anglo-Norman knight John de Courcy invaded Ulster and established his castle on a volcanic dyke at Carrickfergus in 1180.
Between 1203 and 1205, De Courcy was ousted from Ulster by another Anglo-Norman knight, Hugh De Lacy. De Lacy finished the construction of the castle, building the gatehouse, drum towers and outer ward. He also established St Nicholass church and endowed Woodburn priory. In 1210 King John arrived at Carrickfergus, expelled De Lacy and took the castle into royal authority. De Lacy recovered the earldom of Ulster and the castle in 1227 and endowed the Franciscan friary, where he is said to be buried. In May 1315 Edward Bruce, brother of the legendary Scottish king Robert, landed at Olderfleet near Larne and besieged the castle for over a year. Three years later, the English army defeated Bruce at the Battle of Foghart near Dundalk, Co Louth. In retreat the Scottish soldiers laid waste to the town and countryside of Carrickfergus. The town was again razed in 1386 and 1402, destroying much of the original settlement.
The garrison town of Carrickfergus was of strategic significance in the continuing battle for sovereignty in the province of Ulster. In 1575 Brian McPhelim ONeill of Clandeboye burned down much of the reconstructed Carrickfergus, followed two years later by an attack by Sorley Boy MacDonnell. In 1597 John Chichester, the governor of Carrickfergus, was killed in an ambush by the MacDonnells at Altfrackyn near Ballycarry. Two years later his brother Arthur assumed governorship of the castle. A professional soldier and natural leader, Arthur Chichester settled the countryside and successfully planted the town with English and lowland Scots. He also built the town wall, restored St Nicholass Church and started work on Joymount Palace, a Jacobean mansion on the site of the former Franciscan friary. In 1621 the Presbyterian Church at North Street became the first meetinghouse to be established in the town.
