Coiny is a name whose history dates far back into the mists of early British times to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes. It is a name for a swift runner or a timid person. The surname Coiny is derived from the Old English words conig and cony, which mean rabbit. However, Coiny may have also been an occupational surname applied to a dealer in rabbit skins or a furrier.

Coiny Early Origins



The surname Coiny was first found in Lincolnshire, but the place name can be found throughout the world including Coney Arm, Newfoundland and Coney's Castle, an Iron Age hill fort in Dorset, England.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Coiny or a variant listed above: John Connay arrived in Philadelphia in 1865; Edmund Conney arrived in Barbados in 1680; John Conney settled in Boston in 1763; Richard Coney settled in New England in 1665.
