Key Genealogy & History

Key is an English surname with several possible origins. It might be an occupational name for someone who made or worked with keys, from the Old English coeg, meaning key. It might also be a topographical name for someone living near or working at a wharf, from the Middle English and Old French kay/kaye, meaning quay. Next, it could be from the Middle English name Kay, from the Welsh cai, which means corn. Key family history begins with Geoffrey Cai in the Pipe Rolls of Norfolk in 1297. Kay genealogy includes such illustrious personages as poet Francis Scott Key and New Zealand Prime Minister John Key.
