Durney History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Durney family


The surname Durney was first found in Kerry (Irish:Ciarraí) part of the former County Desmond (14th-17th centuries), located in Southwestern Ireland, in Munster province, where they held a family seat as the Viscounts Clanmaurice seated at Abbeydorney. 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. This family name was found later in Cork but the name is mostly found in Ulster and here represented the first recorded reference to the name.
