Do"nor (?), n. [F. donneur, OF. daneor, fr. donner. See Donee, and cf. Donator.]
One who gives or bestows; one who confers anything gratuitously; a benefactor.
One who grants an estate; in later use, one who confers a power; -- the opposite of donee.
Touching, the parties unto deeds and charters, we are to consider as well the donors and granters as the donees or grantees.
