The name White in Ireland was
brought to the country by settlers in
the fourteenth century. The Gaelic
form of the name is de Faoite although
the use of the words 'ban' and 'geal'
that both translate as 'white', has led
to a number of anglicized versions
of this name including Bann, Bawn,
Kilbane, Bannane and even Galligan.
The name is now among the fifty most
frequently found in Ireland.
A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
