Origins Available: English, Scottish


The name Danisum reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Danisum family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Danisum family lived in Lancashire. The name is said to be of Angevin origin, and it is likely that it is a local reference to a town now lost to the maps.

Early Origins of the Danisum family


The surname Danisum was first found in Lancashire where conjecturally they were descended from the great Norman noble, Ive or Ivo Taillebois, who held large portions of the north of Lancashire, and that part of Westmorland which came under the barony of Kendal. The surnames also descended from this noble are Lancaster, Kendal and Irby, Bardsea, Broughton, Kirby and Preston. Ivo arrived in England with William the Conqueror, but there is little known of the family except that they were Angevin.

Danisum Spelling Variations


Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Danisum family name include Danison, Danisone, Dansone, Danson and others.

Migration of the Danisum family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Danisum family to immigrate North America: Daniel Danison Sr. and Daniel Danison Jr. who arrived in Maryland in 1694.
