RAINEY Family History

Recorded in many forms including Rainy, Rainey, Rany, Raynie, Reany, Reaney, Rennie, Renny, Rennison, and Renison, this is a surname of complicated and confusing origins. It can be English, Anglo-Irish, Irish, Anglo-Scottish or Scottish, and with overlapping spelling. In most cases it is, or rather was, a form of the original personal name "Reynold". This was of Germanic origin from the elements "ragin" meaning "counsel", and "wald", rule. Introduced into the British Isles by the Norse-Vikings of the 8th century, and later reinforced at the time of the Norman Conquest in 1066 by the French equivalent "Reinald", it rapidly gained popularity in the medieval period.

    Scott, Were any of the Sams married to a Francis Chamberlain? My dad was named Samuel after his grandfather who was a priest.

    Dean Rainey

    Hi all, I'm Dean Rainey from New Zealand. I'm a 5th Generation Kiwi. My ancestors James Rainey was born 1861 in London, came to Lyttelton and settled in Kaikoura. I know the whole story from there, but prior to that I believe the NZ Rainey's came from Ireland, and Aberdeen in Scotland before that. Any information would be great, as I'm going to write a book for my family.
