The ancient name Wiliamsom was first used by the Strathclyde people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. The name is derived from the Norman personal name William. The name literally was derived from the patronymic expression son of William.

Wiliamsom Early Origins



The surname Wiliamsom was first found in Peebles, where this predominantly Scottish Clan held a family seat anciently, although their interests straddled the English Scottish border and they held territories as far south as Keswick in Cumberland.

The North American colonies beckoned, with their ample land and opportunity as their freedom from the persecution suffered by so many Clan families back home. Many Scots even fought against England in the American War of Independence to gain this freedom.
