Cowins

Value: Recorded in various spellings including Cowan, Cowen, Cowin, Cowing, and patronymics Cowans and Cowins, this interesting surname is ancient Gaelic. It is regularly confused with Gowan, although there does not seem to be any connection, may be either Scottish or Irish, and almost certainly a form of MacEoghain or the son of Eoghan. The latter was a pre medieval personal name originally spelt as Ouein, and meaning well-born. Interestingly it may derive ultimately from the Ancient Greek name Eugenious of the same meaning. Quite how the name managed to pass over the many miles between ancient Greece and the Gaelic countries is far from clear, although it may owe something to the famous Crusader knights. Other forms of the surname include MacOwen, MacCown, MacCone, MacKeown, although most of these lost the 'Mac' prefix during the 17th century, leaving the short forms with which we are more familar today. Early examples of the surname recordings include John Cowan, who was the chancellor of Christ Church, Waterford, Ireland, in 1582, whilst Cowan's Hospital in Stirling, Scotland, was founded by John Cowan, a merchant there, in 1639. Other examples are those of Marionne Cowan and George Mwir, who were married in Ochiltree, Ayrshire, Scotland, on June 6th 1643, whilst Elizabeth Cowin was christened at St Dunstans in the East, Stepney, London, on December 15th 1700. On August 10th 1851, John Cowins, a farm worker left from Belfast on the ship Rochester, bound for New York. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was sometimes known as the Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to 'develop', often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.


POEMS WITH NAMES

Thirty-four sings softly in the moonlight,
Hoping to disturb a passing soul.
In beauty only does one see God"s face,
Reckoning the power by the grace,
Touching so the sunlight in the coal.
Years of song are swallowed by the good night.
