Mckean Family History


The names McKean Keane in Ireland is derived from the Gaelic O'Cein Sept who were based in County Waterford in the South East. Other descendants may have taken their name from families that adopted Keane as a variant of Kane or Cahan, from the O'Cathain Sept of Derry in the North of the country.

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.
