MACKLIN Family History

This very interesting surname is of Irish origins. It is from the Gaelic MacMaicin and O' Maicin, which translates as "The son of the youthful one", or "The descendant or grandson of the youthful one". Who this "Youthful one" was is unknown, but the surname occurs in the province of Munster as O'Maken, O'Mackane, and O'Mackine, from as early as the year 1314 in the Justiciary Rolls of the region. However, this name is not confined to Munster as one Leighlin Omakin is mentioned in an official report of 1360 in the province of Connacht, whilst the books known as the Annals of the Four Masters, record the death of Thomas O'Maicin, the bishop of Leyney even earlier in 1265.
