Welcome to my Ewing family page. This has pretty much been worked from the bottom up starting with my maternal grandmother Alice Sweet Ewing. However, we can expect extensive collateral expeditions especially regarding the Stevensons and Merrimans and anyone else sort of illustrious that stumbles too near.
Although I have used the map of the state of Kansas as the page logo (if you can make out what it is), the truth is my Ewing line had no roots in Kansas in either the male or female lines. Henry Anderson moved the family to Kansas in 1888 from Illinois, and his son, my great-grandfather, Henry Wallis married a woman from Wisconsin and moved his family to Texas in the first decade of the 20th century. There are, of course, descendants of Henry Anderson in Kansas now.
Here's the cold water: There is no Clan Ewing. Ewings there are in Scotland, but Scotland has never known a Ewing Clan: no coats of arms, no tartans, no lineage to The Bruce or to Wallace. Noble folk seldom feel the need to emigrate.
Ewing does not appear to be a corruption or variant of the names that are generally suggested (such as Ewen or McEwen). This is as much nonsense as the legend of the name being shortened from "Eagle Wing" — either for a ship or for the symbol of a legendary hero. On the other hand, preliminary findings of DNA testing seem to suggest that Ewings are more closely related to Highland Scots than once was thought.
The Ewing Family Association site seems to be remarkably free of the usual bagpipes and tartans stuff and has been a valuable resource for me.
