VAHEY Family History

Recorded in many forms including McVeigh,McEvey, Vaughy, Vahy, Vahey, Veighey, Veighy, and others, this is an Irish surname. Of early Gaelic origins, it is derived from 'Mac a' Bheatha' , which is also considered to be the modern Scottish 'Macbeth', meaning 'son of life', or 'man of religion', which hardly fits in with Shakespeares interpretation! Today the name is in addition to Scotland, quite numerous in North East Ulster, and in Connacht. It is probable place of origin was in the Scottish Islands of Mull and Islay where in the medieval times it is believed that the clan were the hereditary physicians to the region.
