EWAN Family History

This name, with variant spellings Ewen(s), Ewin(s), Hewen and Yewen, etc., derives from the Celtic personal name Eoghann meaning "youth". In medieval documents, the name was Latinized to Eugenius, and consequently, its ultimate origin is frequently taken to be the Greek "Eugenios" meaning "noble" or, "well born". Ewen and Ewein (without surname) are recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 for Herefordshire. One, Ewain "Vicecomes de Scon" witnessed King Malcolm's charter to Scon in 1164 and a Ywein Ladde was recorded in the 1177 "Pipe Rolls of Norfolk".
