Reprint of an 1860 Irish Genealogy. The surname Vance is not of Irish origin, yet like many other English or Scottish names it is commonly found in Ireland due to the migrations of past ages. Vance is of Norman origins, and was originally De Vaux. The Vaux and later Vans family, was prominent in Scotland from the 11th century.

The name was introduced to Ireland in the 16th century, and became established primarily in the northern counties.
