LOGAN Family HistoryRecorded as de Logan, O' Logan, Logan, and Lagan, this famous Gaelic surname is confusingly both Scottish and Irish, and in both countries may also have a Norman origin! It is generally considered in Ireland to derive from the Gaelic O'Leoghain, translating as 'the son of the descendant of the Warrior', and this is probably so with many nameholders. However there is also a claim that it is recorded as 'de Logan' in Normandy, even before the 1066 Invasion of England, and that these 'de Logans' accompanied Strongbow, Earl of Pembroke, on his 1170 invasion of Ireland. To further add to the confusion there are several places in Scotland called Logan, and it is possible that some of these may have Norman ancestry...

Searching for the parents of Margret Logan, married James Peterkin and had her first son George Peterkin in Troy, New York in 1868, then moved to Farragut, Iowa and had 10 more children there. DIED IN 1885 AT THE AGE OF ONLY 37 leaving 11 children behind. She, as well as her parents, were born in Ireland and she must have immigrated to the USA or possibly Canada before 1867.
Logan My Logan family came from Liscannor, County Clare. My grandfather, James Logan (1902-1956) was in the old IRA and received a medal for his service. Welcome any info on Liscannor Logans!
Looking for any information on my GGF Hugh Logan born Newtonstewart Co. Tyrone abt 1842. He left Ireland & settled in Jarrow England ( now Tyne & Wear but previously classed as Durham) He married Mary Agnes Manley from Co. Mayo ( don’t know if this was in Ireland or England) Family lore says they may have met on the boat to England. Hugh also had a brother David who was a Minister & settled in Scotland. Can anyone help find out any info as myself & my brother have struggled for several years & would dearly love to complete this branch of our tree for our 86 year old mother. Thanks

(Part 1 of 3) The Logan name can be found in Scotland, but its origin according to DNA is from the north-west coast of the Emerald Island. The Logan story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup A1] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Logan surname origin is from a Northern Ui Neill [R1b-L513] tribe. The Cenél Eoghan and the tribes of Donegal conquered much of Ulster (Derry and Tyrone).
(Part 2 of 3) Cenél Eoghan will expand across northern Ireland with their cousins Cenél Conaill and the Northern Ui Neill between 500-800 BCE. The clans of Finn Valley have the same DNA as people from Gwynedd in Brittany. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Logan story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Scotland as they form part of the Dalriada. Descendants of their tribe will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.
Part 3 of 3) Discover their newly found untold story and how forgotten texts bring their story back to life. From the ebook, “The Tribe Within” learn how DNA unfolds this amazing tale and if you look in the right places, how history narrates this evidence. There is another written account of their story, but it is camouflaged in smoke and myth – it will become the tales of King Arthur.
