MAGNER Family HistoryRecorded originally as Magnel, later after the 15th century as Magner, and intermixed with Menarry, McNary and McNeary, this is an Irish surname, although possibly one of Norman-French origins. It would seem that a Norman settler family called Magnel entered Ireland in the 13th century and held lands in County Cork. This surname became Gaelicized as Maingneir and at much the same time apparently became 'fused' on occasion with McNary and McNeary, to give both Magner and Menarry. Anything is possible with surnames, and perhaps even more so, when a dash of both French and Gaelic is added.
