Leary Genealogy & History

Leary is an Irish surname, from the Old Gaelic O´┐ŻLaoghaire, translated literally as keeper of the calves. This is most obviously an occupational surname for a cowherd or one who raised the cattle that the cowherd watched, but there is also a religious possibility. A herd of cows is similar to a herd of sheep, and the men who kept those were a common metaphor for preachers in the Bible. Leary family history begins with Mahon O´┐ŻLeary, who fled to Spain after the unsuccessful rebellion of 1601. Leary genealogy includes psychiatrist and psychedelic drug experimenter Timothy Leary, comedian and actor Denis Leary, and producer and guitarist Paul Leary.
