Pedersen Genealogy & History

Pedersen is a Danish patronymic surname, originally from the Greek Petros, meaning rock. Petros (or Peter) was also the name of the first Pope and thus a popular Christian name ever after. It became even more common during and after the Crusaders, when those warriors and their relatives sometimes took new names to reflect their religious activity. Pedersen family history begins with Ralph Peter, added to the Pipe Rolls of Hertford County in 1195. Some famous members of Pedersen genealogy are Olympic New Zealand yachting medalist Helmer Pederson, prolific weapon designer John Pedersen, Danish linguist Holger Pedersen, and Danish Imam Abdul Wahid Pedersen.
