Collinson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Anglo-Saxon name Collinson comes from the personal name Col-in, which is a diminutive of Col, which in turn is a pet form of Nicholas. The surname Collinson features the suffix -son, which was most common in the north of England and largely supplanted other Anglo-Saxon patronymic suffixes by the 14th century.

Early Origins of the Collinson family


The surname Collinson was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Migration of the Collinson family to the New World and Oceana


At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Collinson arrived in North America very early:
