Izzaacson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The history of the Izzaacson name began with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the baptismal name Isaac. The surname Izzaacson referred to the son of Isaac which belongs to the category of patronymic surnames. The name is derived from the Hebrew word "yishaq" meaning "laughter." 
The first record of the name in ancient Britain was found in the Domesday Book of 1086 where Isac was listed.  "This, as a baptismal name, was introduced about the time of the Conquest. One Isac appears as a chief tenant in Domesday Book." 
"Hundreds of English people bear one or other of these surnames in whose veins there flows not a single drop of Jewish blood." 
Early Origins of the Izzaacson family
The surname Izzaacson was first found in the Domesday Book of 1086. From this early entry, the name in both forename and surname forms became widespread with many early spellings. Willelmus (William) filius Ysac was listed in the Curia Regis Rolls for Essex in 1206; Henry Isaac was found in the Subsidy Rolls for Worcester in 1275, and Walter Isak in the Subsidy Rolls for Somerset in 1327.  
The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 included: Robert filius Isaac, Lincolnshire; Isaac Judxus (the Jew), Yorkshire; Johannes Isaak, Norfolk; and John Ysac, Oxfordshire. 
In Scotland, "the name was not uncommon among ecclesiastics in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Isaac was prior of Scone from 1154 till 1162, and Magister Isaac was a cleric of St. Andrews, 1201. Ysaac of Brechin was a charter witness there c. 1178-98, and Ysaac de Banevin (Benvie) was one of a jury regarding the Kirketun of Aberbuthenoth, 1205."

Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Izzaacson family name include Isaacs, Isaac, Isaack, Isaacson, Izacke and others.

Migration of the Izzaacson family
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Izzaacson surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Robert and Lucy Isaac settled in Savannah in 1821; William Isaac settled in Grenada in 1776; Rebecca Isaac settled in New England in 1634; Jonas, William, Terry, Phillip Isaac all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860..
