Donlevy Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Donlevy Family History


Donlevy Family History


The Irish name Donlevy is derived from the native Gaelic MacDuinnshleibhe Sept who were located in Counties Donegal and Down in the North of the country. The name is taken from the word 'sliabh' which means 'mountain'. A branch of this Sept migrated to North Connaught in the seventeenth century while another branch moved to Scotland and became known as Dunlop and Dunlief.

A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
