Where did the English Iverson family come from? When did the Iverson family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Iverson family history?

The Anglo-Saxon name Iverson comes from the baptismal name Ivar, derived from the Old French name Ivar, which arrived in England shortly after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The surname Iverson was also derived from the Saint Ives, whose name was also found as St. Ives in Huntingdonshire.

Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Iverson were recorded, including Iveson, Iverson, Ivison and others.

First found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Iverson family emigrate to North America:
