An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The roots of the name Acason are found among the Strathclyde-Briton people of the ancient Scottish/English Borderlands. Acason was originally found in Dumfriesshire, where the first mention of the Clan was of Morris Carson who was appointed Bailiff of the Isle of Man by King Alexander I of Scotland about 1100 A.D. They held a family seat at Accarsane.

Acason Early Origins



The surname Acason was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn Phris), a Southern area, bordering on England that today forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Area, where they are believed to be descended from the Irish Clan MacCarrghama of the Hy Fiachra and arrived on the south west Scottish coast about the 9th century. The clan built the famous Sweetheart Abbey. Sir Robert de Acarson (or de Carsan), a cleric witnessed a charter of Holm Cultram in 1276 and it may be the same Robert de Carsan who rendered homage to Edward I in 1296. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Unwelcome in their beloved homeland, many Scots sailed for the colonies of North America. There, they found land and freedom, and even the opportunity to make a new nation in the American War of Independence. These Scottish settlers played essential roles in the founding of the United States, and the shaping of contemporary North America. Among them:

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Ne m'oubliez
Motto Translation: Don't forget me.
