The names McQuaid, McQuade and
Quade in Ireland are all derived
from the native Gaelic Mac Uaid
septs that were located in
Counties Monaghan and Limerick.
The Gaelic translation of this sept
name is 'son of Watt' so there may
be some sept members who anglicized
their name to Watson.
A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
