ISON Family HistorySometimes the origin of a surname is quite easy to trace, although as to why it developed in a certain way is no always easy to explain - this is one of them! recorded in the spellings of Isson, Ison, Izen, Jesson, Yesson, Ysson, and no doubt many other, this is one of the many spellings of the patronymic form of 'Joseph'. As to how many forms there are of Joseph is unclear, but it certainly runs into hundreds and is found in every European country. Its popularity is mainly as a result of 'Crusader' 12th century influence, when soldiers returning from the famous expeditions to free the Holy Land, named their children after the famous early Christians and in commemoration of their fathers exploits.
