MORRISON Family HistoryRecorded in several spellings including Morrison, Morrieson, Morison, and Moryson, this is an Anglo-Scottish surname, which is almost equally popular in Ireland. It is the patronymic form of the surname Maurice or Morris, deriving from the Latin "Mauritius", and meaning swarthy, from "Maurus", a Moor. The popularity of the name was due in part to the fame of St. Maurice, martyred in 286 A.D. The given name Morris was introduced into Britain by the Normans, among whom it was popular. The personal name was recorded circa 1176 when one "Mauricius de Edligtona" was mentioned in the "Social and Economic Documents of London"...

My ancestors, Morrison, came to America from Ireland. I don't have any dates. I have been led to believe they were heavy in business trade such as bankers. I myself spent 20 plus years in upper management. Part of that time as COO & Security Officer of a Credit Union. Spent 112 plus years in retail upper management. I have been in my own business for 20 years. I had a thirst for knowledge, having graduated college twic0e last with a double. I also started working on an advanced degree, but first class was a dilly. Ended with a 4.0.
