In a recent DNA study of Irish surnames which included 50 McEvoys, 28 were of haplogroup R1b3 and 22 of haplogroup IxI1b2, the latter group including nearly all the participating McEvoys from Ulster.

Matthew McBee arrived on the ship Katherine on November 8, 1678 [from the Maryland Land Office 1673-1679]. He was transported to Maryland by William Stevens of Somerset County, Maryland. He is listed as a well to do tobacco farmer. In the Court Records of Prince Georges County 1696-1699, Matthew McBee is listed as a planter and Press Master for Collington Hundred. The Queen Ann Parish register of Prince Georges County lists the births of Matthew and Jane's children. Matthew left no will and the inventory of his estate was taken May 16, 1709 and proven on July 1, 1709 in Prince Georges County, Maryland.
