HANRATTY Family History

This uncommon name is of Gaelic Irish origin, and is a variant from of the more familiar surname Hanratty, the Anglicized form of the ancient Gaelic "O'hAnrachtaigh", derived from "anrachtach", unlawful. The sept was, and in fact still is, found chiefly in the old territory of Oriel, comprising Counties Armagh and Monaghan and parts of south Down, Louth and Fermanagh. It was descended from Ionrachtach, a scion of the Maguires, and the chiefs of the O'Hanraghtys (the earlier and now obsolete form of anratty), of whom several are mentioned in the Annals of the Four Masters between 1019 and 1161, held a large territory in the northern part of the modern County Louth.

Hello, My father left when I was a child. I don't know any information on his side. His name was George Frederick Haratty III. My 4th great grandfather Michael Hanratty came from Ireland, and was maried to Ann Flanagan. His father, I think, was John Hanratty born 1800. That is about it.

My 4th Great-Grandfather, Francis "Frank" Hanratty was born in 1820 New York and died in 1865 Louisiana. He married Catherina "Catherine" Donoghue (1832/33-1897) who was from County Kerry, Ireland...but had moved to Louisiana as a they must have met and married there.


My Hanratty family are from Navan .
