ROBERSON Family History

This interesting name, first recorded in Scotland in the mid 15th Century, is a patronymic form of the male given name Rober, itself coming from Robert with the loss of the final "t". The ultimate origin of the name is the old German Hrodbert, a compound of the elements "hrod", renown and "berht", bright or famous, through the old French Rodbert. It was introduced into England by the Normans, and the forms Rodbertus, Rotbert and Robert are recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086. William Robertsone, noted in the 1327 "Pipe Rolls of Derbyshire" is the first recorded bearer of the patronymic in England.
