The MacEwen earliest forebear is Ewen of Otter on the shores of Loch Fyne in Argyll in about 1200, descendants from the original Scots of Dalriada. There are numerous alternative spellings used by the clan.
In 1432 the Barony of Otter was granted to Sween MacEwen by James I, with the remainder to the heir of Duncan Campbell of Loch Aure.
