Origin of the Name Duane

The Duane family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Duane include Devine, Davin, Devane, Dwane and Duan. There were several native Gaelic Septs of this name that hailed from County Cork and from Connaught Province. The Gaelic form of the name is O'Dubhain, taken from a Gaelic word that translates as 'black'. The form Dwane is usually found in Munster , while Divane is mostly found in Kerry . Downes is yet another variant that is found in Thomond. The form Devine is chiefly found today in the Counties of Tyrone and Fermanagh. Up to the fifteenth century the Chief of this Sept was Lord of Tirkennedy in Fermanagh. The Four Masters mention one of the family as coarb of Derry in 1066 as well as several who were chiefs of Tirkennedy at various dates to 1427.
The Duane 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 Duane descendants.
