Hi are there any Lawson that lived in Virginia, New York or Boston area. If so contact me. Thank you.
I am told that my grandpa has brothers in New York, Virginia, maybe even North or South Carolina. Not sure. My grandpa lives in Boston, Massachusetts right now. His name is Timothy G Lawson. His sister was Phyllis Lawson and he had a sister named Jerry. If anyone thinks there related. I would like to be contacted. Thank you.
I had no idea that there were so many Lawson's out there. It's weird, I've never met or known anyone else by the name Lawson. I live in Oregon, but was born in California in 1952. My parents and grandparents moved to California from Missouri in the 40's. My people came from there and Kentucky, Virginia and originally from Scotland and Ireland. Our people are scattered all over the world. It's nice to find a place where some of them gather to connect. Nice to find all of you!
I can trace my family back to William Lawson - A Scottish Rebel Birth: June 26, 1731 at Montrose, Scotland Battle of Culloden, Scotland April 16, 1746 Transported to the American Colonies Aug 5, 1747 Montgomery Co.VA. Militia Sept. 13, 1777 Battle of King’s Mountain, S.C. Oct.7, 1780 Death: APR. 18. 1826 in Snowflake, Scott Co, VA. No one I have seen who who posts an online tree for William Lawson The Rebel and states his parents gives a real source for such parents. Any real source for Wm’s parents would have to come from Scottish or English records from the 1700s. I have yet to hear from any Wm Lawson researcher who has found additional info. I live in Virginia and would be interested in hearing from others,Thanks
My grandfather, Bruce Lawson, was in the United States Air Force. He married Thelma Breed, from England. I currently live in Virginia, but grew in in Charleston, South Carolina.
My Great-Grandmother's name was Bertha Lawson she was born April 26, 1883 and lived most of her life in Michigan. She married Thorwold Larsen who was born April 22, 1881 and came to the US from Denmark. They had a son (my Grandfather) named Gerald Larsen on January 6, 1918. I don't know where Bertha was originally from (possibly Michigan) and I don't know of a death date. Anyone know anything about Bertha Lawson?
My great great grandfather is Wiley Eliza Lawson from Stillwater Oklahoma. I am of African American descent. There is a page on Facebook for our family tree if you're interested take a look perhaps you'll be fine some family you never knew you had. Good luck!
Thats pretty cool!
My uncle is Timothy lawson he died last year but they last name Lawson is a long generation
My grandfather is chester o. lawson born in 1925 in missouri, married irma jean jarvis in 1945. i have been trying to create a family tree but have been unsuccessful
im from ayrshire in scotland,ive tried to search my family tree with no success either
I hear the surname changed from lawson to lawless
one who lives by the sword from my research
I am one of the Stokes County NC Lawsons
I'm a Lawson in Washington State, USA don't know much about my dad side of the family
From what I understand, my dad who is a Lawson went to Scotland on vacation and asked around about Lawson's, and the feedback he got was we are notorious cattle thieves on both sides the border, generally around Yorkshire. It's twice as awesome as saying you're descendants were pirates. I've done extensive research on the types of english there are, and Lawsons were defiantly there before any sea invasions, and were for sure cattle people who ate boar, rabbit and pigeon too, lookup Border Terrier Dog, it's what we bred and look like as a dog. My interest is rediscovering my origin's diet, because I find it far easier to digest and I feel fully nourished. An additional note, some in my Lawson side of the family, including myself still have their wisdom teeth, this is a clue that says we did not eat grain, those who had their wisdom teeth removed is because their ancestors bred heavy grain consumption into their genetics, which doesnt need a large jaw to process (so their jaw shrank)
From Ontario, Canada. My Dad's grandfather Thomas Lawson was listed on census forms circa 1890 in Dufferin Cty, Ontario, Canada .. lived in the Terra Nova/Duntroon/Creemore area. Have no idea where he came from, though origin was listed as Scottish. Could possibly have emigrated from America or came directly from Scotland ??? I have met several Lawsons through the yrs but no relation that we know of. I actually have very few close relatives. Planning a trip to Scotland in 2017 for my 50th birthday. I am fascinated by the country, it's the only place I want to travel to in this big old world. It is calling my name :)
From Michigan. Father: Terry Olen Lawson. Grandfather: Olen Lawson from Athens Tennessee. Olen had relatives named Eva Ruth & Florence Lawson. That's all I know- never had the chance to meet any of them- (except my dad.) Do know we are Scottish/Irish descent.
My father, John Lawson, is from Elizabeth, NJ. His parents came through Ellis Island from Scotland in the 1920s. My dad is an only child and his father died when my dad was 3 or 4. So we either lost touch with the rest of the Lawsons, or my grandfather was an only child too, I don't know, but besides my immediate family, I have no other known relatives named Lawson. I'm assuming I do somewhere, most likely in Scotland, but I have no info on them.
We are from Morehouse Parish in Louisiana. Robert Lawson was my grandfather and he had seven brothers, I think. My dad was Samuel Lawson who was born in 1909. His brothers were Robert, Raymond, Allen, Nimerson, and LB. Two sisters, Myrtis, & RV. I would love to know more about the lineage.

Interestingly, this is a different origin story than others I've heard. Most often Lawson is said to have been an anglicisation of MacLaren, which are both patronymics of the "Son of Lauren" or 'Lawrence' I've never heard of a Holy Land origin of this name. I've always thought the most likely scenario might be that Lawsons were MacLarens who split from the clan over a marriage or land dispute and wanted an easier time doing business in the south. It's known that many Scots participated in the Crusades, might it be that one left as a MacLaren and returned as a Lawson for a fresh start? All conjecture, of course, but it would make a great novel. The only thing that I know for sure is that Clan MacLaren accepts Lawsons as clan members, rather than merely a sept.
