History- The MacVadog's (Mac Mhadoc) of Vaddock Country, Leinster
Clan Mac Mhadoc became a distinct branch of the Mac Murrow Kavanagh, the major ruling clan in Leinster before the invasion of the Anglo-Normans in the 12th century. The Mac Mhadoc became quite important and established them as a distinct Sept located on their ancestral range in the Southern part of Wexford in the area now known as MacVadog's Country.
Today, this is the area where Mac Mhadoc Sept names underwent transitions, incurring many changes as families settled across Leinster into North Wexford, into adjacent areas westward and the South of Wicklow, into Arklow Town, Rathdrum Bray and Wicklow Town and eventually into Dublin, where they are mostly located today under the names of Weadick, Wadock, Waddock, Weadock, Wedick, Weddick, Waddick, Wadick, Wardick, Waydock and sometimes Vaddock.

Coming Soon Inside Clan Membership:
At DNA Projects In the Works:
Our membership will find animations (Courtesy of the Sorenson Molecular Research Foundation [email protected]) provided to assist anyone learning more about DNA science and how it is being used by members of the clan to establish family links between distant cousins separated by many generations with a presumption that spelling differences of surnames meant there were no grounds for a common origin or ancestry. DNA in the Works is knocking down such barriers and putting order into the lines of generations between known family trees and those of other family septs. This is a private group and you must be a registered member.
At Chromosome /Surname, and Genographic Sub clade
