SISSON Family History

The name of the martyr St Cecilia, the patron Saint of musicians was particularly popular with the Normans and was introduced into England by them after the 1066 invasion. As a result of its popularity the original name developed into many nickname or petname spellings of which the most usual was "Ciss". From 'Ciss or Siss' developed patronymic spellings by adding the Anglo-Saxon 'Son', to give variant spellings such as Cyson, Sisson, Syson etc. Sisson's a popular surname in the plural form, is a double patronymic similar to the Irish Gaelic O' and means the "Son of Ciss's Son".
