McVeigh Coat of Arms, Family Crest and McVeigh Family History


McVeigh Family History


The Irish name McVeigh is derived from the native Gaelic Mac an Bheatha Sept who were located in the Province of Ulster and in County Armagh in particular. The name is taken from a Gaelic word meaning 'life'. This Sept name has also been widely changed to both McVey and to MacEvoy.

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.
