Ransom Genealogy & History

Ransom is a patronymic English surname, from the Middle English given name Rand or Rande. That, in turn, is a diminutive of many Germanic names with the compound element rand, meaning shield or rim, such as Randolph. Ransom family history starts in 1347, when William Randesson was registered in the Subsidy Rolls of Cambridgeshire. Some notable members of Ransom genealogy are Michigan Governor and Supreme Court Justice Epaphroditus Ransom; Confederate General and North Carolina Senator Matt Ransom; and 20th-century poet, editor, and professor John Crowe Ransom.
