Knowlson Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Knowlson Family History


Knowlson Family History


The names Knowlson and Knowleson are derived from the name Knowles. In Ireland these names are often of immigrant origin having been brought into Ulster Province especially during the seventeenth century. The native Gaelic O'Tnuthghail Sept of County Kildare also sometimes anglicized their name as Knowles as well as the more usual Newell.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
