Martinson Family HistoryThis interesting surname is the patronymic form of the male personal name Martin, i.e. "son of Martin". This given name is of Roman origin from the Latin "Martinus", a derivative of "Mars", the Roman god of fertility and war, whose name may derive ultimately from "mar", to gleam. A famous early namebearer was the fourth Century Saint, Martin of Tours, which resulted in the increased popularity of the name throughout Europe in the Middle Ages, and is one of the few saints names other than the Old English found in England before the Norman Conquest of 1066.
