Hartnett Genealogy

Origins of Hartnett Surname

Other forms of this old west Munster name are Harknett and Harnedy. Its early anglicized form O'Hartnedy, which occured often in the sixteenth century Fiants, is closer to the Irish Ó hAirtnéada: Hartnetty is sometimes found in Co. Cork today. Families of these names are mainly located in counties Cork, Kerry and Limerick, Harnet is more usual in Co. Limerick and Hartnett in Co. Cork, both are found in Co. Kerry, where the 1901 census recorded 55 families of Hartnetts. In each of those counties before the transfer of ownership of land from landlords to tenants there were four large proprietors called Harnett. Harney is a different name (Ó hAthairne) alias Haherney, which belongs originally to south Roscommon, but is today also found in counties Tipperary and Waterford.
