Tannay Early Origins



The surname Tannay was first found in Essex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history dominated after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire. The name originated Saint Aubin du Thenney in Eure. Richard de Tani still held his estates in Thenney which was in the honor of Gilbert FitzRichard.

Tannay Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution.
