The surname Cronnely was first found in Ulster (Irish: Ulaidh), where they held a family seat but were also to be found in County Offaly and Galway. The sept is styled the Princes of Crich Cualgne and are descended from Cu-Ulladh, a Prince in 576. Descended was Cronghall, in 935, Lord of Conaille, the first to style himself O'Connelly. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Cronnelly, Cronnely, Cronelly, O'Cronnelly, Cronley, Cronlay, O'Cronley, Cranley, Cranelly, O'Cranelly, Cranlie and many more.
