Edieson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Early Origins of the Edieson family

The surname Edieson was first found in the Northern English and Scottish Borders. It is generally thought that the first record of the name was found on the English side in Yorkshire: John Addisone in 1308. Years later, Robert Addesone was also found in Yorkshire in 1498. [1]

Across the border in Scotland, the name was fairly common "in the eastern counties from Linlithgow to Aberdeen."

Three years later, William Adison was rector of Luss in 1370 and a few years after that, Gilbert filius Ade was a tenant of the Douglases in the barony of Kylboucho in 1376. [2]
