Early Origins of the ladson family
The surname ladson was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Ledsham near Pontefrac. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1219 when Nigel Ledsham held the domains.

Migration of the ladson family
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 ladson were among those contributors: Fred and Agusta Ledsen and their two children, who came to Manitoba in 1891.
