The history of the Aaronson family name begins after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Norfolk. Their name, however, derives from their place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Airaines, in Somme, France.

Aaronson Early Origins



The surname Aaronson was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Aaronson Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Irons, Kenirons, Hirons, Iron and others.

The Great Migration



Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Aaronson name or one of its variants:

Aaronson Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Dirck Aaronson, who landed in Long Island in 1678
  • Dirick Aaronson, who arrived in Long Island in 1678

Aaronson Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Jacob Lavine Aaronson, who landed in Mississippi in 1884
