The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Burleson come from when the family resided in the village of Burleston in Dorset.
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. Burleson has been recorded under many different variations, including Burleson, Burleston, Burlison, Burlyson, Burlson and many more.
