Origen: Normando, Irlandés. Devany is one of the many new names that came to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Devany family lived in Lincolnshire. The family was originally from Abene, where they held a castle, near Louvaine, Normandy, and it is from the local form of that name, D'Abene which means 'from Abene,' that their name derives. Another important English house of the same name comes from Aubigny, Brittany. Their name is of identical local derivation. First found in Lincolnshire where they were seated from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.
