GODSON Family History

This unusual and interesting name is a dialectual variant of the name Goodson, of English origin. There are two possible derivations of this name, both of which have the same meaning. The first, chiefly found in East Anglia and the East Midlands is a nickname surname for a dutiful son from the Middle English "gode", good, and "sune", son. The second derivation is from a medieval survival of an Olde English pre 7th Century personal name "Godsunu", composed of the elements "god", good and "suinu", son.
