An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The surname County comes from the Irish "O an Chaintigh," which denotes a descendent of a satirist, or "cainteach." This is fitting as the name belonged to a bardic family of west Cork.

County Early Origins



The surname County was first found in County Cork (Irish: Corcaigh) the ancient Kingdom of Deis Muin (Desmond), located on the southwest coast of Ireland in the province of Munster, where it was one of the principal names in the barony of Kinalmeaky in Petty's census of 1659.
