Benson Genealogy & History

Benson is an ancient patronymic/locational Anglo-Saxon name. Patronymically it is derived from medieval given name "Benne" short for the Latin "Benedictus" meaning blessed, popular in the Middle Ages due to St. Benedict (c. 480-547), patron saint of Europe. Locationally it refers to someone from Benson in Oxfordshire, which was originally called "Bennesingtun" in Old English. In English Benson family history, the first record of the name was spelled Bensinton in Oxfordshire in 1208. The Benson motto "si deus quis contra?", which means "if God is with us, who can be against us?" American Benson genealogy includes a Benson immigrant to Virginia in 1620.
