The origins of the name Jessie are from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the baptismal name for the son of Judd, which was a pet form for the Old English personal name Jordan.

The surname Jessie was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from very early times.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Jessie family name include Jesson, Jessen, Gesson and others.

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 Jessie surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
