An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Anglo-Saxon name Conie comes from its first bearer, who was a swift runner or a timid person. The surname Conie is derived from the Old English words conig and cony, which mean rabbit. However, Conie may have also been an occupational surname applied to a dealer in rabbit skins or a furrier.

Conie Early Origins



The surname Conie 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



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Conies to arrive in North America:

Conie Settlers in United States in the 19th Century
