Verson


Verson
This is a very interesting surname. It is now English at least in England, but was originally of French pre 17th century origins. Recorded as both Deverson and de Verson, and in France as Verson, the spelling is confusing as it suggests that the name is a patronymic from the Roman (Latin) baptismal name and word "ver" meaning true, whereas the presence of the preposition "de" would make it almost certainly locational, in fact it may well be either. To add to the confusion, there does not appear to be any "de Verson" recordings in France itself, although this may well be down to the paucity of French registers, the majority of which were destroyed during the Revolution of 1792. Examples of original recordings which appear in the surviving registers of the diocese of Greater London include those of Jean de Verson, whose daughter Esther was christened at the French Huguenot church, Threadneedle Street, on August 12th 1663, that of James Deverson at the famous church of St Clement Danes, on March 13th 1739, and finally that of Pierre Verson who married Marie Cretien at St.Andre-de-L'eure, in the departement of Eure, on August 30th 1748. Name spelling does not easily cross national borders, and even less so three hundred and more years ago when less than five percent of the population could even write their name. Furthermore to be of French origin in England has not always been well "politically correct", and there is nobody quite like the English for having prejudices against "foreigners."
