DEVOY Family HistoryThis very interesting surname appears to be of medieval French or Norman origins, but is in part Gaelic - Irish. It derives from O'Devoy, itself an Anglicized spelling (circa 1550) of the ancient "O'Dubhuidhe". The O'Devoys were one of the original seven septs (clans) of Leix, and it is recorded that they were the lords of Creamhlhain (now Maryborough) from time immemorial. Their resistance to Norman-British rule over many centuries led to the sept being transplanted to County Kerry in 1607. However, this ruling appears to have had little success, the name not being recorded there either in the 1659 Census of Ireland, or now.
