Morgan Genealogy & History

Morgan is a legendary Gaelic-Celtic name originating in Wales that predates Christianity. Initially it was spelled "Morcant", but there are other spellings, including Morgen, Morgain, and Merrigan. Morcant is formed from "mor", meaning "sea", and "cant", meaning circle. Sea defender, warrior, or chief are likely translations. Morgan genealogy tells us that Morgan was first found in Caernarvonshire, where the family seat has been since ancient times. Morgan family history has the first recorded use by Thomas Morgaine, Knight of Monmouth, in 1538. Well known Morgans are financier John Pierpont Morgan, actor Harry Morgan (Col. Potter from M*A*S*H), and Julia Morgan, architect of over 700 buildings.
