Keene Genealogy & History

Keene is from the Old English word cene or cyne, meaning king or chief. It is also from Middle English kene, a nickname for someone who is proud or brave. It may also derive from the Gaelic � Cathain (a descendent of Cathain), which is a form of the personal name Cath (battle). As a result, it would be a child of a battler or warrior. Keene family history shows Adam Kene as the first known recording of the name in the Curia Regis Rolls of Suffolk, England, in 1207. Keene genealogy includes chess grandmaster Raymond Dennis Keene and actress and manager Laura Keene.
