£4.95 Historical Arts 2009



Most MacEwens look back to an origin in the medieval Clan Ewen of Otter, but in fact there were many different MacEwen clans, and many origins for the modern surname MacEwen and its variants.

In this short and accessible book, Thor Ewing presents these various origins, some of which have never been described before. He also expands on what we know about Clan Ewen of Otter, and traces its history after the loss of the barony of Otter in 1493.

So, whether you’re a McEwan or a McEwen, a MacEwan or a MacEwen, a Ewen or a Ewan, or even a Ewing like the author, this book has something to tell you about your family roots.


This book written in 2009 has now been superseded by a new facsimile edition with notes and commentary of Clan Ewen: Some Records of its History which is available from all good retailers.
