Origins Available: Irish, Scottish


The Wulson surname in Ireland came from England and Scotland in the 17th century. The surname itself was ultimately derived from the personal name William, and means "son of William" or "son of Wil."

Wulson Early Origins



The surname Wulson was first found in Northern England, where the first on record appears to be Robert Willeson, listed in the Court Rolls of the manor of Wakefield, Yorkshire in 1324. Other early records include a Robert Wilson in 1341 in documents from the Cistercian Abbey of Kirkstall, Yorkshire; and John Willison in the Subsidy Rolls of Lancashire of 1366. There was a place named Wilson in Devon that has existed since at least the time of the Domesday Book.
