STENSON Family HistoryThis is one of the many patronymic forms of the male given name Stephen, i.e. son of Stephen. Stephen originated from the Greek "stephanos" meaning crown or wreath. The Greeks in their great days had no liking for kings, but the wreath of leaves awarded to athletic champions was looked upon as the greatest award obtainable. It was St. Stephen, the first martyr, who made the name famous. Though widespread on the Continent, Stephen was not used in England before the Norman Conquest; it is first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, as Stefanus.
