Where did the English Iverson family come from? What is the English Iverson family crest and coat of arms? When did the Iverson family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Iverson family history?The name Iverson is tied to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of England. It comes from the baptismal name Ivar, derived from the Old French name Ivar, which arrived in England shortly after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The surname Iverson was also derived from the Saint Ives, whose name was also found as St. Ives in Huntingdonshire.
Only recently has spelling become standardized in the English language. As the English language evolved in the Middle Ages, the spelling of names changed also. The name Iverson has undergone many spelling variations, including Iveson, Iverson, Ivison and others.
First found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Iverson were among those contributors:
