The story of the Hosison family stretches back through time to the Viking settlers who populated the rugged shores of Scotland in the Medieval era. The name Hosison was derived from the name Aassi, which is a Old Norse form of the Old English personal name Oswald, which means divine power. The original spelling of the surname Hosison was Aassiesen, and this form is preserved in the Shetlands; many diminutive forms of the surname also exist. The surname was recorded in the Landnamabok (the Icelandic Book of settlement), as Asi.

The Great Migration



The New World was far from the oppressive regime of the old country. It was a place where there was more land than people and political and religious freedom were far easier to come by. Many Scots even got the chance to fight for their freedom in the American War of Independence. In recent years, interest in this heritage has been generated by Clan societies and regular highland games in North Ameri ca. An examination of early immigration and passenger lists has revealed many people bearing the Hosison name: William Hoseason, and family who migrated directly from the Shetlands about 1730 to Jamaica. This family eventually married into the distinguished Bruce family of Jamaica..
