The family history of the ancient name Trant was found in the archives. Variants of the Irish name Trant include Trante, Trawent and Trewent. These names are derived from the Gaelic Treamhant sept that was located in County Kerry.

A sept or clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory. It is also the case that many Irish septs or clans that are related often belong to a larger groups, sometimes called tribes. For example the 'Tribes of Galway' consisted of fourteen distinct families. The 'Tribes of Kilkenny' were ten families, etc.

Families of the name Trant have been associated with County Kerry since before the Norman invasion of 1170. By the sixteenth century they were well established in the Barony of Clanmorris. In the year 1592 a Richard Trante was sovereign of Dingle and another of the family went to Spain after the Battle of Kinsale. In the seventeenth century they were Jacobites. An Olive Trant was mistress of the Duke of Orleans where she worked in France for that cause. In modern times the name is still mostly found in its original homeland County. The Trant family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Trant descendants.
