Wilson Genealogy & History

Wilson is an English patronymic surname, from the name Will, which is a diminutive form of William. After the Battle of Hastings, William became the most common name in England, from William the Conqueror. William itself comes from the Old German words wil, meaning desire or will, and helm, for helmet or protection. Wilson family history begins with Robert Willeson, noted in the records of the Manor of Wakefield in Yorkshire, in 1324. Wilson genealogy includes such notable people as former President Woodrow Wilson, GM CEO and Eisenhower Defense Secretary Charles Wilson, and Marine General Frances Wilson.
