Hughes is a WELSH surname derived from the forename 'Hugh' In Wales - the family name would be took from the fathers first name - ap Hugh - the English wanted to regulate surnames so they could keep an eye for tax purposes, so they got rid of the ancient system and regulated surnames so ap Hugh became Hughes/Pugh, ap Jon became Jones, ap Richard became Richards/Pritchard, ap Ifan became Evans.

I know Americans are obsessed with Ireland and all things Irish but to claim your own surname is Irish when it is in fact Welsh is somewhat disgraceful!
