This is a great place to start when tracing your genealogy and Galloway surname history and will help you answer the question 'what is the meaning of my name?'
The names Galloway and Galwey in
Ireland are derived from the Gaelic
de Gallaidhe sept that was originally
of Norman origin. Families of the name
were prominent in Ulster Province and
especially in County Cork.
The Ulster Galloways may take their
name from Galloway in nearby
Scotland, while the southern
Galloways and Galweys may take
their name from Galway City.
A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
