Per MacLysaght's Irish Families: Dunlavey, Dunleavy, Donlevy, McAleevy, or Leevy appears in Irish history as far back as 1395 as physicians. MacDonlevys were originally a royal family of Ulidia (Down and South Antrim), defeated by John de Courcy in 1177. Migrated to Tirconnell (Donegal) and were physicians to O'Donnells. One branch went to Scotland (Dunlop and Dunlief).
