Origin of the Name Robinson

The ancient history of the name Robinson was found in the archives. Robinson is a baptismal name meaning 'the son of Robert'. The root name means 'bright with fame'. Variants include Robison, Robson, Robeson, Robin, Robins, Robbins, Robyn and McRobin. This name is of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above countries. Examples of such are a Dera Robins, Cambridge, and a John Robin, Oxford, who were recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273 and a Thomas Robyson was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. A John Robynsone was Bailie of Glasgow, Scotland , in the year 1477 and Andrew Robsone was heir in the Forty Shilling Lands of Glediswode, Lauderdale, Scotland , in 1604. In Ireland the name is popular in Ulster having been introduced there from England and Scotland during the seventeenth century.
The Robinson coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Robinson descendants.
