The names Reed and Reid in Ireland
are often of immigrant origin having

settlers from England and Scotland
in the seventeenth century.
The native Gaelic O'Riada Sept of
County Tipperary and the O'Maoildeirg
Sept of County Mayo have also
adopted Reid and Reed as the anglicized
forms of their name. Mulderrig, Reade
and Red are other variants.
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.
