           before it was conquered by the Israelites

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    a name given to the apostle Simon (Matt. 10:4; Mark 3:18). The
    word here does not, however, mean a descendant of Canaan, but is
    a translation, or rather almost a transliteration, of the Syriac
    word Kanenyeh (R.V. rendered "Cananaen"), which designates the
    Jewish sect of the Zealots. Hence he is called elsewhere (Luke
    6:15) "Simon Zelotes;" i.e., Simon of the sect of the Zealots.
    (See SIMON.)
