LUCY Family History

This interesting name, with variant spellings Lucey and Luce, has three distinct possible origins. Firstly, it may be of French locational origin form any of the places in Normandy, for example, Luce (Orne), so called from the Latin personal name Lucius, a derivative of "lux", light, plus the locational suffix "acum", a settlement. The surname from this source was first recorded in the mid 12th Century, (see below). Other early recordings include Gilbert de Lucie, John de Luce and Richard de Lucy, the 1273, Hundred Rolls of Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Essex respectively.

(Part 1 of 3) The Lucy name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Lucy story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Lucy surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Lucy story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.
