ALLANSON Family History

This interesting surname is a patronumic of Allen, which is of Celtic origin, and derives from a personal name of great antiquity. The name 'Alan', is thought to derive from the Gaelic 'ailin', little rock, a diminutive of 'ail', rock, and was introduced into England and later to Ireland by the Breton followers of William the Conqueror after 1066, among whom it was a very popular given name. One man in particular is credited with being the first of the name into England; Alan Fergeant, Count of Brittany and a companion of the Conqueror, and later first Earl of Richmond in Yorkshire...
