HANEY Family History

Recorded as Hain, Haine, Hayne, Heyne, diminutives Hainey, Haney, patronymics Hains, Haynes, Heynes and others, this is an English surname. It has several possible origins. Firstly, it may be locational from any of the places named from the pre 7th century word "heghen", meaning a farm or enclosure. Secondly it could derive from the English personal name Hain or Heyne, meaning hawthorn, or from the Old Norse Hagni, which also means hawthorn. Finally, the name may have originated as a German (Anglo-Saxon) topographical name for someone who lived by a patch of enclosed pastureland, from "hagen", meaning hedge.

I am searching for information on my great grandmother Rosa Hainey, born in about 1864 in Slyfe Ireland. She immigrated to the US in 1883 or 1884. She married my great grandfather Anthony O'Hara. I cannot find any information on her prior to her move to the US. I appreciate any information you might have that would help me trace her roots. Thank you. Kathleen Ann O'Hara Patterson
