Cleary Family CrestThe Irish surname Cleary  is an anglicized form of the Gaelic name  
Ó Cléirigh meaning “descendant (or son) of the scribe, clerk, or cleric (cléireach).” Bearers of the name Cleary descend from one "Cleireach", born in 820 a.d., and who it is claimed, was a kinsman of Guaire, the Hospitable, King of Connacht. Notable bearers of the name include Julia and Desiree Cleary, daughters of an Irish merchant in Marseilles, who married the brothers of Napoleon Bonaparte, and became the Queen's of Spain and Sweden respectively.
