ROBERTSON Family HistoryThis distinguished surname, with more than forty entries in the "Dictionary of National Biography" and having no less than twenty-five Coats of Arms, is today regarded as Scottish in origin, but is probably English. It is a patronymic form of the male given name Rodbert or Robert, from the pre 7th century German name "Hrodebert". This was a compound of the elements "hrod", meaning renown and "berht", bright or famous. As Robert it was introduced by the Norman-French to both England and Scotland, prior to the famous Conquest of 1066, and replaced the pre-existing Anglo-Saxon name "Hreodbeorht", which had the literal translation, but probably not the meaning of 'bright rod'...
