Paterson Family History


The name Paterson in Ireland is often of Anglo origin, having been brought to Ulster by settlers in the seventeenth century. 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 or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
