DONALDSON Family HistoryThis interesting name, of Scottish and Irish origin, is the Anglicized form of the Gaelic patronymic name "MacDomhnall", meaning "son of Donald". The Gaelic personal name "Domhnall" is composed of the Celtic elements "dubro", meaning world, and "val", might, rule and is found in 13th Century Scotland as "Dofnald", "Douenald" and "Dufenald". One Lucas filius (son of) Douenaldi was a Scots prisoner of War in Berkhamstede in 1296, according to the Calendar of Documents relating to Scotland. The surname itself first appears in the mid 14th Century in Scotland (see below).
