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