GLENNY Family History

Recorded as Glenn, Glinn, Glyn, Glynn, and Glany, Glenie, Glennie and Glenny, this can only be described as a surname of the British Isles. It has several possible national origins. Firstly it may be Cornish or Welsh from any of the places called Glyn or Glynn, such as Glyn Dyffryn, near Corwen, in Merioneth; or Glynn on the river Fowey, in East Cornwall. These placenames derive from the pre 6th century word glin or glyn, meaning a valley. Secondly it can be Scottish, and again locational either from Glen, a place near Peebles, or from the lands known as 'Glennie's Parks' near Braemar, in Aberdeenshire, with Angus Gleny being the first of the name and recorded in the year 1408.
