McKeown Coat of Arms, Family Crest and McKeown Family History


McKeown Family History


The Irish name McKeown is taken from a number of native Gaelic Septs, especially the MacEoghain Sept of Connaught and MacEoin Sept of Ulster. These names are Gaelic forms of the first name 'John'. There are a wide number of variants including Magone, MacCune, MacEwen and even Caulfield. Johnson and Johnstone have also been used as anglicized versions of the Sept names.

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.
