MCEVOY Family History

Recorded as McAvey, McAviy, McAvoy, McEvay, McEvoy, McEabuoy, MacGilloway, McElwee, MacVeagh and others, this is an Irish surname of great antiquity. It derives from the pre 10th century Gaelic Mac giolla Bhuidhe meaning the son of the follower of the fair haired one! The faired haired one being almost certainly a Norseman, is clear evidence that this was a clan which if not Norse in origin, were supporters of the Norse -Vikings during their occupation of Ireland in the 9th to 11th centuries. However it is also claimed that at least some nameholders had a different origin arising from Mac Fhiodhbhuidhe.

    Hello, I am trying to identify where my McEvoy ancestors came from. They belonged to the Abbeyleix Society here in Waterbury, Ct in the early 1900's. My research traces my 2nd Great grandfather, Michael McEvoy  to his immigration in 1850. Mother-Tyrrell, wife-Egan.

    you are not the only person who has looked for it, to the best of my knowledge it remains unknown. I am trying to put what information I can on him, it come mostly in little bits, and a few articles and bits of books. There are many inaccuracies.

    I sent a reply a while ago, not sure if it went through, so trying again. I am a great-grandson of captain Charles Ambrose McEvoy. I do not know of the location of his gravesite nor the location of the gravestone of his son A.A. McEvoy (the artist). this was carved by Eric Gill. I am putting together what I can on Captain C.A.McEvoy and would be interested in your publications

    I am very interested in the American Civil war and have written some books on the subject. For many years others and myself have been searching for the gravesite of ACW veteran Charles Ambrose McEvoy who died in Codicote, Herts in 1905, can any of the McEvoy family help?
