Maye Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Maye Family History


Maye Family History


The names Maye and May in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic O'Miadhaigh Sept that was located in County Westmeath and is taken from a Gaelic word that translates as 'honourable'. Mea and Mawe are variant spellings. Maye was also introduced into Ulster Province by settlers from England, especially during the seventeenth century.

A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
