Origins Available: English, Scottish


The Deveson surname is a patronymic created from the personal name David.

Deveson Early Origins



The surname Deveson was first found in Perth, Scotland, where, in 1219, Johnannes filius Davidis, a merchant in Perth, is mentioned. Some accounts suggest that around 1000 AD the Catti (Chattan) Clan, from whom the Davidson Clan descends, broke into two distinct factions, the MacKintosh and the MacPherson clans. The Davidson Clan was part of the MacPherson element, but always considered itself to be the senior clan of the Chattan group. Records from the Ragman Rolls show Adami fiz Dauid of Forfarshire and Johan le fiz David of Berwickshire rendering homage to King Edward I of England in 1296. Bearers of Deveson were found on both sides of the Scottish-English border. The first estates of the Clan Deveson were at Invernahaven, a small estate in Badenoch, where they were said to be found from the mid 14th century.
