Origin of the Name Trant

The ancient history of the name Trant was found in the archives. Variants of the Irish name Trant include Trante, Trawent and Trewent. These names are derived from the Gaelic Treamhant sept that was located in County Kerry.
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.
Families of the name Trant have been associated with County Kerry since before the Norman invasion of 1170. By the sixteenth century they were well established in the Barony of Clanmorris. In the year 1592 a Richard Trante was sovereign of Dingle and another of the family went to Spain after the Battle of Kinsale. In the seventeenth century they were Jacobites. An Olive Trant was mistress of the Duke of Orleans where she worked in France for that cause. In modern times the name is still mostly found in its original homeland County.
The Trant 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 Trant descendants.
