Origin Displayed: English

Where did the English Wilkerson family come from? What is the English coat of arms/family crest? When did the Wilkerson family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?

Wilkerson is a name that came to England in the 11th century wave of migration that was set off by the Norman Conquest of 1066. Wilkerson comes from the Norman personal name Wilkins, which in turn is derived from the name William. William, which is derived from the words will, meaning resolution and helm, meaning armed.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Wilkerson are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Wilkerson include Wilkinson, Wilkisson, Wilkiesson and others.

First found in Durham where they were seated from early times.

Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Wilkerson, or a variant listed above: William Wilkinson, who arrived in Virginia in 1606, 14 years before the “Mayflower”; Lawrence Wilkinson, who arrived in Providence, RI in 1645; Daniell Wilkinson, who arrived in Providence, RI in 1679.

Motto Translated: Glory to thee, not to me.

First found in the borderlands between Scotland and England; the name was first borne in this region by a Strathclyde-Briton family, as revealed in records dating back to the 13th century.In such difficult times, the difficulties of raising the money to cross the Atlantic to North America did not seem so large compared to the problems of keeping a family together in Scotland. It was a journey well worth the cost, since it was rewarded with land and freedom the Scots could not find at home. The American War of Independence solidified that freedom, and many of those settlers went on to play important parts in the forging of a great nation. Richard Young and his wife, who settled in Virginia in 1623; as did Edward and Jane Young in 1636; Joseph and Margaret Young, who immigrated to New England with their two sons in 1635.

Motto Translated: Prudence excels strength.

First found in Berwickshire, where the Wilson family held a seat from ancient times.In their new home, Scots found land and opportunity, and some even fought for their new freedom in the American War of Independence. Some, who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists.

First found in Ayrshire where they held a family seat from ancient times.The number of Strathclyde clan families sailing for North America increased steadily as the persecution continued. In the colonies, they could find not only freedom from the iron hand of the English government, but land to settle on. The American War of Independence allowed many of these settlers to prove their independence, while some chose to go to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots played essential roles in the forging of both great nations. Eleanor, Elizabeth, George, Jane, William, and Mary Wallace all settled in Charles Town S.C. in 1768; Alexander Wallace settled in Georgia in 1733; Andrew, Boyd, Daniel, Edward, Francis, George, Hugh, James, John, Michael, Patrick, Robert, Samuel, Thomas, and William Wallace all settled in Philadelphia, P.A. between 1820 and 1870.Motto Translated: For liberty.

First found in Yorkshire, where the walker family was seated from ancient times.At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name walker arrived in North America very early: John Walker, Roger Walker, and Isabel Walker, who all immigrated to Virginia in 1623; Augustine Walker, who settled in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1630; James Walker, who arrived in St. Christopher in 1635.

Motto Translated: How Great are Honourable Deeds.

Where did the Scottish Thomson family come from? What is the Scottish coat of arms/family crest? When did the Thomson family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?

The many spelling variations in Medieval Scottish names result from the fact that scribes in that era spelled words according to sound. Translation too, was an undeveloped science, and many names were altered into complete obscurity. Over the years Thomson has been spelled Thomson, Tomson, Tamson, Thomsoun, M’Comie and others.

First found in Ayrshire where they were seated as Lords of Kylne Kylle from about the year 1150.

To escape the uncertainties and discrimination faced in Scotland, many decided to head out for North America. Once they arrived, many Scots fought with relish in the American War of Independence; some went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Many ancestors of these Scots have recovered their lost national heritage in the 20th century through clan organizations and Scottish historical societies. Among the settlers to North America were: Edward Thomson arrived on the “Mayflower” at Plymouth, Mass. in 1620; Andrew Thomson settled in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, in 1801; Dugald Thomson settled in New York in 1739.

First found in Roxburghshire, where a family seat was held on the lands of Ballendan at the head of the Ale water in that county.Some of the Boernician-Scottish clan families who came to North America were Loyalists who went north to Canada after the American War of Independence. Families on both sides of the border went on to found two of the world’s great nations. This century, families with Scottish roots have rediscovered their heritage through highland games and clan societies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Scott or a variant listed above: Nicholas Scot, who arrived in Virginia in 1606, fourteen years before the “Mayflower”; Elizabeth Scot settled in the Barbados in 1667; Goodwife Scott arrived in Virginia in 1623.
