Coffey Genealogy & History

Coffey genealogy is solidly Irish, originating in County Cork. Coffey is an anglicization of the ancient Gaelic name O'Cobhthaigh from the personal name Cobhthaigh, meaning "victorious one." This is most likely a legendary warrior ancestor of the tribe. There are three main septs, or family lines, of Coffeys, and at least one of them claims descent from the Irish king Luy Mac Con. Some believe that the Cork Coffeys are from the same family as the O'Driscoll clan. There have been many alternate spellings of the name, including Caughey, Coffie, and Coughay. Coffey family history includes Irish playwright Charles Coffey and Canadian hockey player Paul Coffey.
