All Irish surnames have a long, ancient Gaelic history behind them. The original Gaelic form of the name Devorint is O Dabhoireann, or also Dubhdabhoireann, derived from the words dubh, which means black, and an da Bhoireann, which means of the two Burrens.

Devorint Early Origins



The surname Devorint was first found in County Clare (Irish: An Clįr) located on the west coast of Ireland in the province of Munster, where they have been anciently seated as Chiefs of their territory at Cahirmacneaghty. They were anciently a Dalcassian sept of Brehons (Judges or Lawyers) and came down to Clare from the north probably sometime before the 10th century to settle in their north Clare barony at Noughaval, wherein this distinguished sept had their own mortuary chapel within the Church of Noughaval.

The Great Migration



In the late 18th century, Irish families began emigrating to North America in the search of a plot of land to call their own. This pattern of emigration grew steadily until the 1840s when the Great Potato Famine of the 1840s cause thousands of Irish to flee the death and disease that accompanied the disaster. Those that made it alive to the shores of the United States and British North America (later to become Canada) were, however, instrumental in the development of those two powerful nations. Many of these Irish immigrants proudly bore the name of Devorint: Michael O'Deveren arrived in Pennsylvania in 1854.
