Dawson (Derry)

Origen: Normando. The name Dawson reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Dawson family lived in Westmorland (now part of Cumbria). The family was originally from Osonvilla, near Dieppe, Normandy, and it is from the local form of this name, D'Oson, which means 'from Oson,' that their name derives. First found in Westmoreland where they were seated from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Spelling variations: Dawson, Daweson, and others.

Motto: "Tourne vers L´Occident", Turn towars the west.
