Mcilwee Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Mcilwee Family History


Mcilwee Family History


The name McIlwee is derived from the Gaelic Mac Giolla Bhuidhe sept name. This name translates from the words 'giolla' meaning 'lad' or 'youth' and 'buidhe' which means 'yellow'. Thus the name literally translates as 'son of the yellow youth'. This sept was located in Counties Donegal and Derry in the very North of Ireland. Variants of the name include McEvoy, McGilloway, McVeagh and McAvoy.

A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
