TIMONEY Family HistoryRecorded as O' Timony. MacTimpany, Timney, Timny, Timoney, Timpany, Tumpane, and others, this is quite a rare Irish surname. It originates from the more northern counties of Leitrim and Mayo, as well as the Ulster counties of Armagh, Donegal, and County Down, and as Tumpane is found to the south in County Tipperary. The surname derives from the pre medieval word 'tiompanaigh', a musical instrument called the timpane, from which we get the modern timpani, or kettle drum. It is therefore occupational for a player of such an instrument.
