Surnames: GANEY, GAINEY
The Ganey name is of royal descent and came from the fact that our great grandfather many times over was the third
son and being so was unable to inherit property, his older
brothers having claimed his father's and his mother's right
to those estates he thus became "he who has 'little hope'
of inheriting money". Then he chopped off the "he who has"
and the "of inheriting money" leaving 'little hope' and in
Old High French thkis word or title was Gaiongnloegh,Gaelic
for Little Wano or Little Hope thus down through the years
it has been spelled any number of ways, but it is now Ganey.
