Robbynson is an ancient Anglo-Saxon name that is derived from the baptismal name Robin, which was the diminutive of the personal name Robert. Patronymic surnames arose out of the vernacular and religious given name traditions.

Robbynson Early Origins



The surname Robbynson was first found in Yorkshire, where one of the first records of the name was John Richard Robunson who was on record in 1324 in the Court Rolls of the manor of Wakefield. Later the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 listed: Roger Robynsoun; Roger Robyn-man (the servant of Robin); and Adam Robyn-man (the servant of Robin), 1370. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The surname is "distributed all over England, except in the south - west, where it is either absent or extremely rare. Its great home is in the northern half of the country, the numbers rapidly diminishing as we approach the south of England. Northamptonshire may be characterised as the most advanced stronghold of the Robinsons on their way to the metropolis." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Guppy, Henry Brougham, Homes of Family Names in Great Britain. 1890. Print.

Further to the north in Scotland, early entries are rare, so one can presume the name migrated there at some point: "the tenement of John Robynson in Irvine is mentioned in 1426, and another John Robynsone was bailie of Glasgow in 1477. Andrew Robersoun witnessed the sale of a tenement in Arbroath in 1450. The name was common in Glasgow in the sixteenth century." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Robbynson Spelling Variations



Robbynson has been spelled many different ways. Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Many variations of the name Robbynson have been found, including Robinson, Robenson, Robbison, Robbinson, McRobin and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Robbynsons to arrive on North American shores: John Robinson, who immigrated to Virginia in 1606; Isaac and Bridget Robinson, who arrived in Plymouth in 1629; Alister, Charles, James, and Daniel Robinson, who all settled in Boston in 1651.
