Sampson Genealogy & History

Sampson is an English surname, with three possible French origins. First, there is the biblical name Samson, from the Hebrew Shimshon, a diminutive of shemesh, which means sun. It was given both as a general name by devout Christians before and after the Norman landings, and as a nickname, comparing the bearer to Samson either seriously or sarcastically. It may also be locational, from many places in Normandy and England named Saint-Samson. Sampson family history begins with Albert de Samsona, noted in the Domesday Book for Ely, Cambridgeshire, in 1086. Sampson genealogy includes a few notable people, such as Rear Admiral William Sampson and Canadian songwriter Gordie Sampson.
