ROWSON Family HistoryRecorded in the spellings of Rawson, Rawsen and Rowson, this is a surname of early medieval English origins. It is very good illustration of just how far spelling and pronunciation has moved since those early times. Developed from the Norse-Viking pre 10th century 'Radulfr', which is itself the source of the French 'Raoul' and the Norman 'Radulf', these were often 'amalgamated' at least in the British Isles, after the 1066 Norman Invasion, to form the personal names 'Rafe or Ralph'. These in turn created patronymics based around the original personal, and later surnames.
