Where did the English Leason family come from? When did the Leason family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Leason family history?Leason is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the baptismal name for the son of Levison, which was a form of Lewis. Baptismal names are forms of patronymic surnames, and derive from either the religious or the vernacular given name traditions. In this case, the surname Leason was originally derived from the given name of the father of the bearer.
The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Leason has been recorded under many different variations, including Leeson, Leason and others.
