What is roberson?


Roberson is a surname and a variant of Robertson. When surnames were introduced in English, there were many ways one could choose the new family name. One method, for instance, was to use an individual’s profession as a surname (e.g. a baker became “Baker” or a cooper became “Cooper”). Another common practice was to add “son” to the patriarch’s given name. Thus, the surname for the sons of Robert became “Robertson”, or “Robinson” (as Robin was apparently a popular nickname for Robert). Over the centuries, and maybe even from the beginning, there have been many derivations of the Robertson and Robinson surnames - Roberson and Robason are two such derivatives. The geographical origins of the surname Roberson is that of Northern England and Scotland.
