Paterson Family History
The name Paterson in Ireland is often of Anglo origin, having been brought to Ulster by settlers in the seventeenth century. It is also derived from the native Connaught based Gaelic Mac Paidin and O'Casain Septs, that are more usually anglicized as MacPadden and Cussane respectively.
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.
