Charleson Early Origins



The surname Charleson was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The name Charleson itself comes ultimately from the Germanic personal name Carl, which was Latinized as 'Carolus'. Early forms of the name in Britain predate the Norman invasion, but some bearers of this name no doubt come from Norman stock. The suffix 'son' or 'ston' indicate a patronymic surname created from the name of a father or male relative. In Europe the name's popularity was in no small part due to the fame of Emperor Charlemagne (742-814) or 'Carolus Magnus' in Latin. The Saxon influence on English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066, but some Saxon surnames survived. The first record of a precursor to this family name was first referenced in the year 1208 when Carolus held estates in that shire.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Charleson, or a variant listed above:
