MATTSON Family History

This interesting and unusual surname is a variant of Matthew which is of medieval English origin, ultimately from the Hebrew given name "Matiyahu", which translates as gift of God. Mathew is first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 in the Latin form Matthaeus, which in France became "Mathieu". It is likely that the name was first introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, where it became extremely popular first as a personal name and later as a surname giving rise to numerous patronymic forms, such as Mattson, Matthews, and Matts.
