Rainey Genealogy & History

Rainey is a British surname, a variation on the personal name Reynold, originally a German name. Reynold is a compound name, from the Old German ragin, for counsel, and wald, which means rule; thus, a wise ruler or perhaps the advisor to a chieftain or king. The name was reinforced with the Norman Conquest, as the French equivalent Reinald became semi-common. Rainey family history begins with Henry Raney, who was entered in the Hundred Rolls of Derbyshire in 1275. Rainey genealogy boasts of several notable people, such as prolific actor Ford Rainey, House Speaker and Majority Leader Henry Rainey, and early blues singer Gertrude �Ma� Rainey.
