Where did the English Jetson family come from? What is the English Jetson family crest and coat of arms? When did the Jetson family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Jetson family history?The name Jetson is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of the Britain and comes from the names Judd and Jutt, which are pet forms of the personal name Jordan. These names are derived from Jurd, a common abbreviation of Jordan, and feature the common interchange of voiced and voiceless final consonants.
The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Jetson has been spelled many different ways, including Judd, Judson and others.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Jetsons to arrive in North America: Herbert Judd settled in Virginia in 1635; Christopher and Elizabeth Judd settled in Virginia in 1742; Thomas Judd settled in Cambridge Massachusetts in 1630.
The Jetson Family Crest was acquired from the Houseofnames.com archives. The Jetson Family Crest was drawn according to heraldic standards based on published blazons. We generally include the oldest published family crest once associated with each surname.
