Where did the Irish Maloney family come from? What is the Irish Maloney family crest and coat of arms? When did the Maloney family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Maloney family history?Before Irish names were translated into English, Maloney had a Gaelic form of O Maoldhomhnaigh, which means descendant of a servant of the Church.
Irish names recorded during the Middle Ages are characterized by many spelling variations. This preponderance of variations for common names can be explained by the fact that the scribes and church officials that kept records during that period individually decided how to capture one's name. These recorders primarily based their decisions on how the name was pronounced or what it meant. Research into the name Maloney revealed many variations, including Molony, Maloney, O'Maloney, O'Molony, MacLoughney and many more.
First found in County Clare, where O'Moloney, were chiefs of Cuiltenan, now the parish of Kiltonanlea, in the barony of Tulla.

A great wave of Irish migration occurred during the 19th century as a direct result of English colonial rule and tight-fisted absentee landlords. Many of these Irish immigrants boarded passenger ships bound for North America. Those who migrated early enough were given land in either British North America or the United States; those who came in the late 19th century were typically employed in industrial centers as laborers. At whatever age they undertook the dangerous passage to North America, those Irish immigrants were essential to the speedy development of the two infant nations to which they arrived, whether they broke and settled land, helped build canals, bridges, and railroads, or produced products for consumer consumption. An examination of immigration and passenger lists has uncovered a large number of immigrants bearing the name Maloney or one of its variants:
