An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Georgeson was spawned by the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture that ruled a majority of Britain. It comes from the given name of the father and was typically denoted as "the son of George." The personal name George was originally derived from the Greek word which means someone who was a farmer or someone who worked the land.

Georgeson Early Origins



The surname Georgeson was first found in Dorset where it is noted as a somewhat rare name in mediaeval records. The popularity of the name increased during the Crusades which brought more contact with the Orthodox Church. St. George, who slew his famous dragon in 303 A.D., may have inspired the use of this name. In 1348, Edward III founded the Order of the Garter under the patronage of St. George and by 1415, a yearly festival was set in place that continues today. Today, St. George is considered the patron saint of England.
