Welcome to the Emmerson Family WebSite!
site is dedicated to the Emmerson or Emerson family. I would also like to share a brief history of my family with others and
to family members we've not yet met.
Brief Family History:
variations include: Emerson, Emmerson, Emerston and others.
- First found in Durham where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman
Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
- Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its variants were: Ellis Emerson, his wife Anne,
and son Thomas (who was the scion of one of U.S. most distinguished families), settled in Virginia in 1623 from Durham; William
Emerson settled in Virginia in 1618 before the "Mayflower".
Translated: In thee, O Lord, I have placed my hope.
