The Robynsum name is an important part of the history of the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Robynsum 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.

Robynsum Early Origins



The surname Robynsum 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, and a Thomas Robynson was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax returns of 1379. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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 Robynsum family emigrate to North America: 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.
