Origin of the Name Carney

The Carney family history was found in the archives. Variants of Carney include Kearney and O'Carney. The name Kearney is evenly distributed throughout the four provinces of Ireland . The alternative spelling Carney, however, is almost totally confined to Connaught, and particularly to County Mayo. The most important of these Septs in history are of different origin. They were chiefs of Teffia, County Meath, and even when their influence diminished they retained a considerable territory in Kilcoursey in County Offaly. Five Kearneys of Irish origin appear in the Dictionary of American Biography in the sphere of politics, literature and warfare. The family of John Kearny of Fethard, who was secretary to James II, were very prominent in the French court and legal circles during the eighteenth century.
The Carney coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Carney descendants.
