McWilliams Genealogy & History

McWilliams is a Scottish surname, originally from Norman France. It comes from the Middle Gaelic Mac Uilleim, meaning the son of William, which itself is a Germanic personal name. William comes from the Old German wil, meaning will or desire, and helm, for helmet or protection, and spread to France with the rise of the Germanic tribe of Franks. McWilliams family history comes to the New World with Jane McWilliams, who sailed to Pennsylvania in 1771. McWilliams genealogy includes several well-known people, such as author, editor, and lawyer Carey McWilliams; Irish journalist and economist David Williams; and award-winning diplomat and ambassador Edmund McWilliams.
