Origin of the Name Hanvey

The Hanvey family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of the name Irish Hanvey include Hanvy and O'Hanvey. These names are derived from the Gaelic o'hAinbhith sept that was located in Counties Down and Armagh. This sept name is taken from the Gaelic word 'ainbhioth' which translates as 'storm'.
A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. Irish septs and clans that are related often belong to even larger groups, sometimes called tribes.
Smaller septs of the name were located in Counties Meath and in the western part of County Cork in the very south of the country. In modern times the majority of descendants bearing the name Hanvey are still to be found in Ulster Province.
The Hanvey 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 Hanvey descendants.
