Spelling and translation were hardly exact sciences in Medieval Scotland
. Sound, rather than any set of rules, was the basis for spellings, so one name was often spelled different ways even within a single document. Spelling variations
are thus an extremely common occurrence in Medieval Scottish names. Patricksomb has been spelled Patrickson, Partickson, Patricksone, Patricksoun, Patryckson and many more.
Such hard times forced many to leave their homeland in search of opportunity across the Atlantic. Many of these families settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. The ancestors of many of these families have rediscovered their roots in the 20th century through the establishment of Clan
societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Among them: George Patrickson who settled in Baltimore in 1790.
