We Have Told Clan MacEwan Stories...

Castle MacEwen Loch Fyne Scotland

See... Here's Mark finding the Castle MacEwen?

What's left of it anyway.

Don't be shy.... Do you have a clan story you love to tell?

We'll take you straight below again to that submission box where you can write your story and share it.

We don't claim to be experts on Clan history or lore. There are plenty of web sites that go into that.

We just want to hear what you have to say.

We have another story we call our "Welcome Home". It's not about McEwens directly, but it is about the Isle of Skye in Scotland.

Dunvegan Castle Isle of Skye
Lakes and the Cuillin Isle of Skye

In the wee book we bought about Scottish Clans, we found the clan spelled MacEwan and MacEwen....

The sign on the castle cairn is spelled MacEwen.

The beer we love in Scotland is spelled McEwan's.

Tell Us How You Spell The Clan Name

So is it Mac or Mc.... and followed by what? We've seen MacEwan and McEwen -- also McEuen, McKeown, Ewing and the list goes on and on.

Near as we can tell, the clan name comes from the Gaelic MacEoghainn for goodness sake... no wonder clerks and scribes had trouble figuring out how to write it. The variety is due to the fact that long ago most people were illiterate, so when names were recorded, they would be spelled phonetically.

Our spelling is one of the "different" ones; yours may be too, but we're sure we're all related. Our family lore is that our different spelling was due to a "black sheep" in the family, but it's probably because of that phonetic spelling when our ancestor came through Ellis Island.

Have You Been Traveling?  Have Some History?  Questions?

So do you have stories about Loch Fyne, or Otter Ferry or Kilfinan?
      Or the Cowal Peninsula or Argyll?
      Or clan gatherings or bits of history?
      Or stories about related Clans?
      Or just stories to share about Scotland?

We think it would be fun to gather Clan MacEwan stories for all of us to read. We'd love to hear them and create pages for sharing. We have another page for other travel stories if you have a story from somewhere else in the world you'd like to share. Keep reading and you'll see how easy this can be.

Dedicated Clan MacEwen websites have come and gone... we can't keep track of them.  Wish there was a place we could send you.  For a bit of research by a Clan member, go to Jim's Clan McEwen Research.

We've put up a new page you might want to try if you're looking for family connection.... Find Other McEwens.
