Coveney Family HistoryThis unusual name can be either English or Irish. If English it is locational, and derives from the village of Coveney in the county of Cambridgeshire. The placename derives originates from an Olde English pre 7th Century personal name "Cofa" plus "eg", meaning island. Coveney village is in an area of former "Fenland", where there may have been an island on a lake or waterway. The surname is still found mainly in East Anglia though it is also established in Ireland. Here it may be of English origin, or more likely is a form of Mac Coveney.
