Donalson Descendants

Closely allied topatronymical surnames are the Scottish clan names and names of septs and tribes.In the Highlands of Scotland, where family names became fixed much later than inthe Lowlands and in England, it was the custom to take the name of the leader orhead of the clan as the surname without reference to blood relationship. Takingthe clan name was joining the clan, affirming allegiance with the clan chief.Septs and tribes allied themselves with the more powerful clans for protection.It has been estimated that about half of the clan names begin with Mac.Highlanders mixing with people in the Lowlands who were antagonistic changed ortranslated their names to acquire some protective coloring. Highlander McDonald,for instance, translated his name to English Donaldson/Donalson/Donelson. Othersmerely dropped the Mac.

The Donalson Coat of Armsis officially documented in Burke's General Armory. The original description ofthe arms shield is as follows:  "Or, a two-headed eagle displ. sa.beaked and membered gu. Surmounted of a lymphad of the second, flagged of thethird, in Dexter chief a sinister hand couped also of the third, all within acordure of the last."

When translated the blazon also describes the original colors of the Donalsonarms as:  "Gold: A black two-headed eagle displayed, beak and legsRed, surmounted of a black ship, flagged red, in left upper third, a left handsevered red, all within a red border."

Above the shield and helmet is the crest which is described as: "A Red Passion Cross."

Notes for WARREN FRANKLIN DONALSON: Warren Franklin Donalson left for Texas about 1870-1880. He may have been inLouisiana for a while after leaving Georgia. His brother William Donalson, Jr.was constable in Georgia. William, Warren and their brother in law, EmoryLasiter and five others were involved in the murder of a freedman (70 yearsold). Supposedly, William had a warrant for the man's arrest. The man resistedand got killed. It seems strange that it took eight individuals to subdue a 70year old man. It is possible Warren Franklin Donalson left Georgia shortly afterthis incident (1866 approximately). William and Warren could be mentioned in"Black Book of Georgia". William stayed in Georgia and died there. Hewas a prominent member of the community.
