About us

Kevan is a Scottish surname usually found in the counties of Kirkcudbright and Wigtown, which form a region in the southwest of Scotland known as Galloway. One theory holds that all Kevan males descend from a recent common ancestor whose surname means 'the family of the Bay of the tidal flats', ie Wigtown Bay(Carrick Gallovidian by John Kevan McDowell), but whether or not that is true remains to be seen through DNA testing. The Kevan Project is open to any Kevan male (Cavan, Keven, and other variants included) or to any man believing that he is descended from a Kevan male.
