HARRINGTON Family History

This long-established name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational surname deriving from any one of the places called Harrington: in Cumberland, near Whitehaven; in Lincolnshire, near Spilsby; and in Northamptonshire, near Kettering. The place in Cumberland, recorded circa 1160 as "Halfringtuna, Haverinton", is so called from the Olde English pre 7th Century byname "Haefer", from "haefer", he-goat, with the suffix -ing(as)", denoting people, tribe of, and "tun", settlement, enclosure. Harrington in Lincolnshire is recorded as "Harinton" in 1202, and is named with the Olde English "haer", stony ground, with "tun", as before, while the Northamptonshire Harrington, recorded as "Arintone" in the Domesday Book of 1086, and as "Hetherington" circa 1100, is so called from a derivative of the Olde English "haeth", heath; hence, "the settlement of the dwellers on a heath"...

Have spent decades looking for roots as dad was adopted by Beard family. My great grandmother was Mary Ann Harrington who married Walter Head from Ludlow UK. Her parents were Patrick and Catharine Lyons (St Finbarrs Cork) who met and married in Stepney London circ 1848.Patrick was from Coolcoulaghta Muinterverra and son of John Harrington and Catherine Hurly born 1825 baptised Durrus ..............I don`t get any Harrington response from the Sheeps Head Peninsular so maybe all emigrated? Any other descendants?
