We told you one of our clan stories...
See 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.
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.
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.
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.
If you want to read about a Clan organization, check The Clan MacEwen. And 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.
