HANSON Family HistoryThis name can be either a patronymic or a metronymic, meaning it may be derived from the name of the first bearer's father or mother. As a patronymic, it derives from "Han(n)", a Flemish form of John from the Hebrew "Yochanan" meaning "Jehovah has favoured (me with a son)". "Hann(e)" was a very popular christian name in 13th Century Yorkshire, appearing frequently in the 1274 - 1297 Court Rolls of the Manor of Wakefield. The surname from this source is first recorded in Yorkshire in the early 14th Century (see below). As a metronymic, the surname derives from the medieval female given name "Hann", a short form of Hannah from the Hebrew "Chana" meaning "God has favoured me"...
