RIGNEY Family History

Recorded in many spelling forms including Raggeny, Ragne, and Rigney, this is an English surname. It is clearly locational and therefore from some place, however no such place or anything like it, has been found in any of the known gazetters, even those going back several centuries. This suggests that the surname either originates from a now "lost" medieval village of which the surname in its various forms is the only surviving public reminder, or the place name spelling or the surname spelling, has been "transposed" to the point where it is no longer recognizeable.

My ancestor is John Rigney 1828-1880 from county Roscommon Ireland. His wife was Bridget Harney. Are there documents to show who his parents were or more information on John and Bridget. I am not finding much at all. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Best regards, ED
