The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Burleson come from when the family resided in the village of Burleston in Dorset.

 More

The surname Burleson was first found in Dorset, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

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.

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 Burleson or a variant listed above:
