Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Halverson include Alverton, Alverston, Alveston, Halverston, Halverson, Halveston, Halverton and many more.

First found in Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed.

Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Halverson were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
