The name Paterson in Ireland is

It is also derived from the native
Connaught based Gaelic Mac Paidin
and O'Casain Septs, that are more
usually anglicized as MacPadden
and Cussane respectively.
A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
