JORGENSEN Family HistoryThis notable surname is of Ancient Greek origins, although for very obscure reasons, the patron saint of England.. Deriving from the Greek name "Georgios" meaning a farmer, the name was used in Europe throughout the early Christian period, being associated with a martyr of the 3rd century, supposedly killed at Nicomedia in the year 303. The popularity of the name increased greatly at the time of the famous Crusades in the 11th and 12th centuries, when it became the practice for returning crusaders and pilgrims to name their children after biblical figures from the Old Testament.
