Madison Genealogy & History

Madison is one of the few European names that came from mothers rather than fathers. It means son of Maddie or Maddy, which are nicknames of the ancient female names Maud and Mahalt, which themselves are derived from the Norman first name Matilda. Despite the surname's connection to Norman ancestry, Madison family history shows that the name comes from Germanic words meaning mighty battle. Madison genealogy includes President James Madison; Episcopalian Bishop James Madison, eighth president of the College of William and Mary; and Kentucky Governor George Madison; and Navy Commander James Jonas Madison, WWI Medal of Honor recipient.
