Huson is one of the names derived from the families of the ancient Dalriadan clans of Scotland. It is derived from the "son of little Hugh."

Huson Early Origins



The surname Huson was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, on the Isle of Bute, from ancient times where they were descended from the MacDonalds of Sleat.

The Great Migration



The hardy Scots who made the crossing settled all along the east coast of North America and in the great west that was just then opening up. At the time of the American War of Independence, many United Empire Loyalists moved north from the American colonies to Canada. Scottish national heritage became better known in North America in the 20th century through highland games and other patriotic events. An examination of immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Huson arrived in North America very early:
