The name Daweson reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Daweson family lived in Westmorland (now part of Cumbria). The family was originally from Osonvilla, near Dieppe, Normandy, and it is from the local form of this name, D'Oson, which means 'from Oson,' that their name derives.

Early Origins of the Daweson family


The surname Daweson was first found in Westmorland where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.
