Harty Surname History


Origins Available: English, Irish


The Irish name Harty was originally written in a Gaelic form as O hAirt, which connotes a descendant of Art.

Early Origins of the Harty family


The surname Harty was first found in County Meath (Irish: An Mhí) anciently part of the kingdom of Brega, located in Eastern Ireland, in the province of Leinster, where they were of the southern Ui Neill. Before the Anglo- Norman invasion of the 12th century, their chiefs were known as the lords of Teffia.

Harty Spelling Variations


The recording of names in Ireland during the Middle Ages was an inconsistent endeavor at best. Since the general population did not know how to read or write, they could only specify how their names should be recorded orally. Research into the name Harty revealed spelling variations, including Hart, O'Hart, Harte, MacArt, McArt, MacCart, McCart and many more.

Migration of the Harty family to the New World and Oceana


Death and immigration greatly reduced Ireland's population in the 19th century. For the native Irish people poverty, hunger, and racial prejudice was common. Therefore, thousands left their homeland to seek opportunity in North America. Those who survived the journey and the quarantine camps to which they arrived, were instrumental towards building the strong developing nations of the United States and the future Canada. By far, the largest influx of Irish settlers occurred with Great Potato Famine during the late 1840s. These were employed as construction or factory workers. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has shown early immigrants bearing the name Harty:
