PEARSON This distinguished name is of early medieval English origin and is one of the patronymic forms of the medieval given name Piers, itself the usual vernacular form of the male given name Peter. Piers was adopted by the English from the Old French "Pierre, Piers", introduced by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066; the Latinized form, "Petrus", is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086. The name is ultimately of Greek origin, from "petros", rock, stone, and was very popular among Christians in Europe during the Middle Ages, mainly because it was the name bestowed by Christ (as a byname) on the apostle Simon bar Jonah; the name was chosen by Christ for its symbolic significance: "Thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my Church". In England, the personal name was an early favorite, and consequently has generated a large number and variety of surname forms, among them the patronymics Pearson, Pierson and Peirson. Early recordings of the surname include John Pierisson (1332, Warwickshire); Robert Peresson (1395, Yorkshire); and William Pierson (1412, Lancashire). One Cutbert Peirson was an early emigrant to the American colonies; he was listed as living at "the Indian thickett" near Elizabeth City in Virginia in 1623. A Coat of Arms granted to the family depicts per fesse embattled gules and azure, three suns in splendor ore. The crest being: out of a ducal coronet ore, a paroquet. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Richard Peresone, which was dated 1327, in the "Exchequer Lay Subsidy Rolls of Somerset", during the reign of King Edward 3rd., known as "The Father of the Navy", 1327 - 1377. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Hi Ron,

We're sad to inform you that the Black Sheep Project is being dissolved. All BSP's subprojects will be moved in pieces under the Notables Project as categories and perhaps as Teams, depending on interest. Witch Trials will become a subproject of Notables.

Your BSP project member badge will soon be removed. If you'd like to join the Notables project, please let one of us know and we'll get you a Notables badge.

Please email either of us if you have any questions and if you'd like to join the Notables project.

Thanks, Susan McNamee & Traci Thiessen ~Co-leaders, Black Sheep Project

Hello, Ron,

It has been a few weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Black Sheep Project and as we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Hi, Ron...I hope the chemo is doing its job and that things are looking up for you!

I share a John Stacy (1722-1770) with you. On the My Heritage site, I find his wife, Anne with the maiden name of Thomas. I also find another wife, Mary May Abernathy. Here is the listing: Marriage: Marriage to: Anne Stacy (born Thomas) Feb 1752 York, Virginia, USA Marriage: Marriage to: Mary May Stacy (born Abernathy) June 27 1763 Granville, North Carolina

I have no idea how reliable this info is...just passing it along!
