Thank You.

Does this go back to the early 1800's?

All mine were in Scotland by then.

Thanks.

No, 1901 census is the oldest.

In Colmbkille the family name is McKeon - note the spelling. Id assume is a Scots name from circa 1700's and of one of two origins in the area:

- Planters, who later turned Catholic
- Ulster Gaels, who settled North Longford from 1700-1750 after pogroms in Strabane and Antrim.

Most notable member was General Sean MacEoin - note the current spelling - whose family are still in the area. As a boy he was a humbler sounding John Joseph McKeon.

Fewof the family use the old spelling now, one who does is Fr Seamus McKeon a local parish priest.
