Dempsey Genealogy & History

Dempsey is an Irish/English name, with two derivations. The once-powerful Irish clan owned Clanmalier (now Leix and Offally Counties), with Terence O'Dempsey titled Viscount Clanmalier by James I; however, centuries later the clan lost the lands due to loyalty to the British crown. In Gaelic, the name O'Diomasaigh derived from diomasach, meaning proud. The English Dempsey family history is thought to be from a now-lost medieval village called Demsey (dembel meaning lake and eg meaning island). Other variations in Dempsey genealogy are Demsay, Dempse, Dempsie, and O'Dempsey. Famous name-holders include General Dempsey, commander of the British D-Day forces, and Jack Dempsey, world heavyweight boxing titleholder 1919-1926.
