Houston Genealogy & History

Houston is a Scottish name with two possible origins. One is that it was a locational name given to people who lived in a town named "Houston". This name itself comes from the given name "Hugh" (from the Germanic "hug", meaning "heart", "mind", or "spirit") and the Middle English "tune" (meaning "settlement" or "village"). Houston family history begins in Renfrewshire, where the Scottish knight Hugh de Paduinan founded a town named "Houston" in 1165. Houston genealogy includes Sam Houston, the general who attained independence of Texas and proceeded to become its first President and first governor. The city of Houston is named after him.
