Atkinson Genealogy & History

Atkinson is a patronymic English name, derived from the Biblical name Adam. The family motto is "esperance en Dieu" meaning "hope in God". Atkin is comprised of "Ad(e)", a diminutive of Adam, meaning "red earth" (the change from "d" to "t" was simply dialectic), and "kin," an Old English diminutive suffix meaning "little" (similar to Jr.). Atkinson therefore means "son of little Adam". In English Atkinson family history there was a family seat in Northumberland/Cumberland in ancient times; in Scotland the name is usually spelled Aitchison or Acheson and is popular in the Borders region. American Atkinson genealogy originates in Virginia in 1623.
