The original spelling of the surname Horsison was Aassiesen, and this form is preserved in the Shetlands; many diminutive forms of the surname also exist.

The Great Migration



The Scottish settlers spread out along the fertile land of the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. They and many of their children went on to play important roles in the forging of the great nations of the United States and Canada. That heritage has been recovered by many in this century through Clan societies and other Scottish historical organizations. Archival documents indicate that members of the Horsison family relocated to North American shores quite early: William Hoseason, and family who migrated directly from the Shetlands about 1730 to Jamai ca.
