  • Notes 
    • (Research):From New England Families, Genealogical and Memorial:

      Edson is a shorter form of Edwardson, Edmondson, or Edwinson, possibly a deriviative of Addison. The first mention of the name Edson, spelled in this way, is in the early American records relating to this family, and it is believe the immigrant himself abbreviated his name upon coming to this country. [page 1923] [1]
