The Anglo-Saxon name Randleson comes from Randolph of which it is a short form. The surname Randleson referred to the son of Randolph which belongs to the category of patronymic surnames.

Randleson Early Origins



The surname Randleson was first found in Norfolk at Yelverton, a parish, in the union of Loddon and Clavering, hundred of Henstead. "The church [of Yelverton] is an ancient structure in the decorated and early English styles, with a square embattled tower, and contains several handsome monuments to the families of Rant, Playter and Day; and a Norman font. The sum of 27 per annum, arising from land purchased with a bequest by Mrs. Anne Rant in 1698, is divided between the rector and the poor, the latter of whom have also 4 acres that were allotted at the inclosure."

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Randleson family emigrate to North America: James Rand, who arrived in Plymouth in 1621 a year after the "Mayflower"; Francis Rand, who settled in New Hampshire in 1630; John Rand, who settled in Virginia in 1690.
