Petersen Genealogy & History

The surname Petersen is found primarily in northwest European countries such as Finland, Denmark, Holland, Germany, Belgium, and Denmark. It is derived from the Greek "petros", a rock, and refers to St. Peter, founder of the Christian Church. Petersen genealogy shows that the name was brought to England by soldiers returning from the Crusades. The Petersen coat of arms shows the upper half of a stag leaping from the middle of a blue shield, above a silver cross. One of the first known recordings of this name in Petersen family history was made in Prussia about 1680.
