Maughan Family HistoryThis very interesting surname is recorded in a number of spellings including Machan, Maughan, Maun, Mawne, Meighan, Meighen, Meegen, Meugens, Mineen, Mohan, Mahan, Moan and probably others. It has at least three possible origins. It is said that however spelt it can be Scottish, English, Irish, Welsh, or even Dutch - German, and if so, all seem to have overlapped in the registers of Europe as well as the British Isles, through the passing centuries. If Scottish it is of medieval origin, and a locational name from Machan, an old parish in the county of Lanarkshire.
