Davern Family HistoryThis interesting and unusual surname, with variant spellings Davoren, Daveren, Daveran etc., is an Anglicized form of the old Gaelic O' Dabhoireann. The Gaelic prefix "O" indicates "male descendant of", plus the personal byname Dabhoireann, which in its original form Dubhdabhoireann denotes "the dark or swarthy one of the Burren", from "dubh", black and "boireann", the Burren, (County Clare). The "Wars of Torlough" mention one, Coradh mic (son of) Dabhoirenn in 1317. The surname first appears on record in the mid 14th Century, (see below).
