The ancestors of the Clenny family were part of an ancient Scottish tribe called the Picts. They lived in the old lands of Leny, which were in the parish of Callander in Perth. The surname Clenny belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Clenny Early Origins



The surname Clenny was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



The freedom of the North American colonies was enticing, and many Scots left to make the great crossing. It was a long and hard journey, but its reward was a place where there was more land than people and tolerance was far easier to come by. Many of these people came together to fight for a new nation in the American War of Independence, while others remained loyal to the old order as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of Scots in North America have recovered much of this heritage in the 20th century through Clan societies and other such organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important and early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Clenny: James and Patrick Lenny arrived in Philadelphia in 1845; James Lenny arrived in Philadelphia in 1871.
