The Scottish surname MacQueen is an anglicized form of the Gaelic surname Mac Shuibhne meaning “son of Suibhne” a byname meaning ‘pleasant’. Clan MacQueen is originally from the Hebrides region of Scotland. In the 15th century several MacQueens settled in lands controlled by Clan Chattan. Since then, many MacQueens have lived in the north-east of Scotland. These MacQueens were followers of Clan Chattan, and were known as Clan Revan. The leading family of these were the MacQueens of Corrybrough. Sometime in the 18th century the leading family suffered financial difficulties and lost its lands of Corrybrough.
