Ewens History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Irish , Scottish


The Ewens surname is derived from the Gaelic personal name Eógann, which comes from the Latin name, Eugenius, which means well born. Ewens 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 Ewens family was established in Scotland, well before the Norman Conquest of England, in 1066.


Early Origins of the Ewens family


The surname Ewens was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
