The landlord in question was a certain Hugo de Paduinan, who held the place c. 1160. The Scottish surname is also common in Ulster.

Irish: variant of McCutcheon from Mac Uisdein or Mac Uistein.

History: In 1836 the newly founded city of Houston, TX, was named in honor of Sam Houston (1793–1863), soldier and statesman. As commander in chief of the Texan army he achieved Texas independence from Mexico by routing the army of the Mexican general Santa Anna.
