Background: This story of the origin of Clan Ewing is considered in connection with the Gaelic Highland records, is all the light we have regarding the origin of this family name. That evidence leads to the conclusion that the name of the Glasgow-Loch Lomond Ewing clan, or family from which the Ewings here considered descended, is the Cymric Lowland origin. It is clear, that those who hold to the Gaelic origin overlook the Cymric evidence, certainly as to the family, it is worth repeating for emphasis. Of course it must not be forgotten that, as has been said, there are Ewings who are *Scotch or Scotch ancestry who are not descended from our ancient Scotch ancestors.

Variations: Ewing, Ewan, Ewen, Ewings, Ewin, Ewins, Hewin, Hewins, Uwins, Yewen, Youens, Youings

Clan Ewing in America (www.clanewing.org) is currently in the process of conducting a DNA study of all interested Ewing descendants (see the Clan Ewing website for more information and how to participate) and the results so far seem to indicate that most American Ewings are of Gaelic Celtic origin, not from the Cymric Lowland Scot (native Briton Celt). We are either descended from the Northwest Irish (Ulster region) or are closely related to the Irish Clans that populated that area begining with the Gaelic migration to Ireland.
