Hanney Family History

This interesting surname is often confused with the Scottish habitational name Hannay from the unidentified place, although there is no evidence of any connection as Hanney being of English locational origin from a place thus called in Berkshire. The placename was recorded as "Hannige" in the Cartularium Saxonicum (956) and as "Hannei" in the Domesday Book of 1086. The component elements of the name are the old English pre 7th Century "hanena" meaning cock plus "ieg" an island; hence island frequented by (wild) cocks.
