WELCOME TO CLAN DONALD WESTERN AUSTRALIA

This Home Page is about Clan Donald in Western Australia and how it came about through the dedication and time of a lady called Pamela McDonald.

The Patron for the Clan Donald Society of Western Australia is The Right Honourable Lord Godfrey James Macdonald of Macdonald. For further information regarding our Patron click here.

Highland clan is a set of men all bearing the same surname, and believing themselves to be related, the one to the other, and to be descended from the same stock. In each clan are several subaltern tribes, who own their dependence on their own immediate chief, but all agree in owning allegiance to the supreme chief of the clan or kindred, and look upon it to be their duty to support him in all adventures.

The Patriarchal system of clanship thus made the people regard, with unfailing devotion their chief as the head of their race, and the representative of their common ancestor; while the iron feudal system, which was known among them in the earlier ages of of Highland history, compelled the people to obey their leader as feudal lord of the lands on which they dwelt.
