The Church of Ireland's Tithe Applotment Book of 1833 for the Diocese of Cloyne, Mogeesha Parish, covers the area of County Cork where my ancestors lived. It does not contain any KIDNEY surnames, although it does list John Duane, Timy Duane, and David Duane. This provides some evidence that the KIDNEY and DUANE surnames may have both been used within my family. Does anyone have further historical insights into the use of more than one surname by individuals?
There is a theory that the KIDNEY and DUANE surnames are derivatives of the Irish surname of O Dubhain. KIDNEY seems to be the anglicized version. Does anyone have further information about the name O Dubhain (e.g. Is it associated with an Irish clan)?
