The ancestors of the first family to use the name Denisone lived among the Dalriadan people of ancient Scotland. The name Denisone was given to someone who lived near a place named Danzielstoun, in Scotland. Thus Denisone is a local surname, which belongs to a category of hereditary surnames derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Denisone Early Origins



The surname Denisone was first found in Renfrewshire, at Danzielstoun, in the parish of Kilmalcolm. "The manor took its name from some man named Daniel, and it bore this name as early as the reign of Malcolm IV", [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



These settlers arrived in North America at a time when the east was burgeoning with prosperous colonies and the expanses of the west were just being opened up. The American War of Independence was also imminent. Some Scots stayed to fight for a new country, while others who remained loyal went north as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of them went on to rediscover their heritage in the 20th century through highland games and other patriotic Scottish events. The Denisone were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Sam Denniston who settled in New York in 1774; and John Denniston, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1802.
