DAVISSON Family History

This unusual surname is a patronymic form of the male given name David, from the Hebrew "Dodaveha" meaning "Beloved of Jehovah". This name was borne by the greatest of the early kings of Israel, which led to its popularity first among the Jews, and later among Christians throughout Europe in the Middle Ages. St. David, the 6th Century Bishop of Minerva, became patron saint of Wales, and the names was borne by two kings of Scotland: David 1 who reigned from 1124 to 1153, and David 11 (1329 - 1371).
