THE Keeshan family is descended from Milesius, King of Spain, through the line of his son Heber. The founder of the family was Eogan More, son of Olliol Ollum and Sabia, who were King and Queen of Munster, A. D. 177. The ancient name was Ceasain and signifies “Tormentor.” The possessions of the sept were located in the present County of Kerry.
