Aningson is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the personal name Agnes, which itself is derived from the Greek name Hagne, which means pure and holy. The name was also used in the Latin phrase Agnus Dei, which means lamb of God. The personal name Agnes was popularized by devotees, the early Christian martyr, Saint Agnes.

Aningson Early Origins



The surname Aningson was first found in the English midlands county of Nottinghamshire from very ancient times, where the family name held vast estates and were an important contribution to the early life and times of the county. They are recorded in the Domesday Book as holding lands and manors. The Domesday Book was compiled by Duke William in the year 1086 A.D.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Aningson or a variant listed above: William Annis, who settled in Virginia in 1639; Thomas Anniss, aged 23, who settled there in 1683; as well as William Arness, who arrived at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1685..
