DOONE Family History

This interesting surname may be either of Anglo-Saxon, or of Old Gaelic origin. If the former, Doone is a variant of the more familiar "Down, Donne", itself a topographical name from residence by a down, hill or mountain, deriving from the Olde English pre 7th Century "dun", hill, mountain, with an important special sense of "hill pasture". Topographical surnames were among the earliest created, since both natural and man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages.
