The distinguished surname Draughon is of ancient Irish origin. It is derived from the Gaelic "O Druachain," meaning "son of Druachan."

Draughon Early Origins



The surname Draughon was first found in County Wexford (Irish: Loch Garman), founded by Vikings as Waesfjord, and located in Southeastern Ireland, in the province of Leinster, where a Maurice O Droughane, a husbandman of Ballincolane, received a pardon in 1569. Very early on, there was an ecclesiastical family called O Druchain in Armagh, and it is thought that there may be a connection between this family and those of the name Draughon.
