    The name Pearson is believed to be of Danish or Norman origin. Tradition has it that the Pearsons were once members of the Viking race, and upon leaving Scandinavia, went both to England and France, especially Normandy. In England the first of the sea-roving Vikings bearing our name resided in Northumberland, a county of northern England between the Humber and the Fifth of Forth, before 1200 A.D. Our own clan seems to have settled in Wilmslow, Mobberley and other surrounding hamlets in County Chester in the west central section of England. Chester was the termination point of the old Norman Conquest Road, and it is thought by some historians that some of the Pearsons came to England via the Norman Conquest of 1066 A.D.

    The name of Pearson evidently evolved through several spellings. First we had Edward Peersonne, and then his son, Lawrence Peirson, and the spelling used by their descendants today of Pearson. Sonne is the Old English spelling of the word son, and Peer or Peir refers to Peter. Even though the spelling of the name has been changed from time to time down through the centuries, I believe we will all agree that the actual meaning of our surname is Peter's son. Lawrence's sons changed the spelling to Pearson upon their arrival in Pennsylvania from England. It is believed this was brought about because of the confusion of identity caused by four Thomas Peirsons settling in Pennsylvania about the same time.

    Descendants of Edward Peeresonne

    Generation No. 1

    1. EDWARD1 PEERESONNE was born Abt. 1575 in Bollin Twp., Wilmslow Parish, Cheshire, England, and died July 25, 1648 in Wilmslow, Cheshire, England.

    Notes for EDWARD PEERESONNE:
    Source: Wilmslow Parish Records

    Notes from Corinne Diller:
    1656, Aug. 16, death of Robert Pearson, who was the first person buried at Mobberly Quaker Cem. All information from Wilmslow Parish registers, read on
    microfilm at F.H.C. Pownall Fee and Styall are villages in Wilmslow Parish. Mobberley Parish is adjoining Wilmslow Parish. Morley MM was in Wilmslow,
    but the cemetery was in Mobberley. MY NOTES: I know some of these dates don't fit. Children were commonly christened soon after birth. However, the
    weather was bad, if father was busy with work, or mother was ill, the christening took place whenever they could make the trip to the Parish church. Sometimes a child was christened in an adjoining parish while they
    were visiting relatives, or doing business there. The father on all the above christenings was listed as Ed Peeres, or Edward Peeresonne. There were other men named Edward (abbreviated Ed.), and Edmund (abbreviated Edmd.) in Wilmslow Parish, but they did not list the same township as home. These other men did not start having children till 1610.

    The surname is always spelled by the clerk of the parish as "Pierson", before 1576. Then there was a new clerk, who spelled it "Peeresonne", or abbreviated it as "Peeres''. Lawrence's name was spelled "Pierson" during his adult life. I have many notes of my original microfilm research, especially in Wilmslow Parish. None of those notes are in my computer, though. A Sarah Person, supposed sister of Robert, married Elias Farr, of N.J., and mentions in her will a niece Mary wife of John Scarbrough. It is a different Pearson family, from Lancashire. That Robert Pearson had a daughter Mary, born 20 June 1665, he came to Pa. 1682 with Penn, returned to England in 1684 with Penn.
