Trainor / Traynor

The Gaelic Ulster surname Mac Threinfhir - son of strong man, or champion -is anglicized Traynor, also spelt Treanor and Trainor, without the Mac, though the prefix is retained in the variant MacCrainor, which is phonetically more correct, since the T is aspirated in the Irish form of the name. Apart from Dublin city, Traynors are chiefly found in the districts between Monaghan, Armagh and Dungannon.



Research of Irish records has revealed that in a 20 year period between 1814 and 1834

there were 9 males by surname TRAINOR (sic) living on holdings in "Damully" (Damoily)

Townland, in Co. Armagh, Ireland, on land owned by the Earl of Charlemont.

John, Patrick, Hugh, Bernard, Michael, Terence, Thomas, Owen and Felix

It seems reasonable to assume that, if not all brothers, they were related to each other in some significant manner.
