The name Alleeson is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of the Britain and comes from the pet-name "Alice" as in "the son of Alice." One source claims that name was in fact, Norman having derived from "Bernard de Alençon who held several lordships from Hervey de Bourges, Suffolk, belonged to the family of the Counts of Alençon, descended from Ivo or Belesme, c. 940. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The phonetic resemblance of the name Alençon and the name Alleeson is apparent, but no other sources confirmed this ancient heritage. Of note was Alisoun (Alison) who appears in Chaucer's "Miller's Tale" c. 1386, as John's younger wife. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



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 Alleesons to arrive in North America: George Allyson who settled in Virginia in 1662; Sarah Allyson who settled in Virginia in 1656; Andrew Allison who settled in Philadelphia in 1750 with his two brothers named James and Robert.
