The name Ewing in Ireland is derived from the native Gaelic Sept Mac Eoghain that was principally located in the Province of Ulster. It was also brought to the country by Scottish settlers in the seventeenth century. It is in Ulster that the majority of descendants can still be found.
Origen: Irlandés, Escocés. The west coast of Scotland and the rocky Hebrides islands are the ancient home of the Ewing family. The root of their name is the Gaelic personal name Eógann, which comes from the Latin name, Eugenius, which means well born. Ewing is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Many patronyms were formed when a son used his father's personal name as a surname, while others came from the personal names of famous religious and secular figures. The Ewing family was established in Scotland, well before the Norman Conquest of England, in 1066. First found in Argyllshire, where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Dovenaldus Ewain, documented in 1164.
