On the Scottish west coast, the Husan family was born among the ancient Dalriadan clans. Their name comes from the "son of little Hugh."

Husan Early Origins



The surname Husan 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, on the Isle of Bute, from ancient times where they were descended from the MacDonalds of Sleat.

The Great Migration



Significant portions of the populations of both the United States and Canada are still made up of the ancestors of Dalriadan families. Some of those in Canada originally settled the United States, but went north as United Empire Loyalists in the American War of Independence. The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw the ancestors of many Scots on both sides of the border begin to recover their collective national heritage through Clan societies and highland games. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: William Hewison who settled in Georgia in 1775.
