Scallan Early Origins



The surname Scallan was first found in Wexford (Irish: Loch Garman), founded by Vikings as Waesfjord, and located in Southeastern Ireland, in the province of Leinster, where they held a family seat as a branch of Madigan clann. Traditionally they are descended from Fiacha Araidhe the 37th King of Ulster. More directly, they are descended from Scoieach, a chieftain and schoolteacher of the Madigan line and related to the Mannings. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable. This family name was found later in County Meath and represented the first recorded reference to the name.
