HOWEY Family History

Recorded as Howie and Howey, this famous Scottish name is locational. It derives from an estate known a "The lands of How" in the county of Ayrshire, although the precise location is now lost. The name therefore is a member of the ever growing list of surnames of the British Isles that originate from lost medieval sites. It is claimed that the origin is from the Ancient British-Strathclyde 'hoh', a word which pre-dates written history, and describes a hollow or deep valley, from which also developed the surname How or Howe.
