About Frances Deshon (Robertson)

this IS WERE THE TWO BLOOD MEETS About the Robertson line (Frances Robertson married to John Deshon): ROBERTSON The Chief of the Clan Robertson, known as the Clann Donnachaidh, was Donnachaidh Reamhar, otherwise known as Duncan de Atholia, who was male descendant of the ancient Celtic Earls of Athole. The clan, however, count their Cheifs from Duncan, under whom they first appear as a clan in support of Robert the Bruce – Duncan’s friend and kinsman. “The Robertson’s of Struan,” says Skene, “are unquestionably the oldest family in Scotland, being the sole remaining branch of that Royal House which occupied the throne of Scotland during the eleventh and twelfth centuries.” From first to last the clan is noted for its loyalty to the Stewarts. On the murder of James I. at Perth, it was Robert, the Chief of Clann Donnachaidh, who captured his murderers, for which act he had many honors conferred on him by King James I.’s successor; and to further commemorate this, father and son took the name of Robertson, which the clan has since retained. Their territory, it is said, at one time extended from the watershed of Rannoch Moor to the gates of Perth. One of the most famous chiefs was Alexander Robertson of Straun, known as the “Poet Chief”. The Chiefs had Castles in Rannoch and at Invervack, near Straun; later, and up to 1860, their principal residence was Dunalastair; other residences were Cario, Dall and Rannoch Barracks. Miss Jean Rosine Robertson in 1910 succeeded as head of the clan. From “The Scottish Tartans” printed by W. & A.K. Johnston, Ltd. Edina Works, Easter Road, Edinburgh, Scotland.
