Garvey Family History


The name Garvey in Ireland is derived from either the O'Gairbhith or the MacGairbhith native Gaelic Septs who were located in Counties Armagh and Donegal respectively. The O'Gairbhiths were a branch of the O'Hanlons of the same area. Garvan and Garvin are variants of this name which can also be derived from the County Kerry based O'Garbhain Sept.

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.
