Meaning, Origin, Etymology
Allison is a surname of English and Scottish origin. When used as a given name it is traditionally masculine, as opposed to the feminine name Alison. Alison, variant form Alizon, is a surname of French origin. This surname is derived from the name of an ancestor. ‘the son of Alice.’ (Scottish, English) The son of Ellis (God is salvation); corruption of Allanson, q.v.; the son of Alis, a short form of Alister or Alexander (helper of mankind); the son of Alice (noble cheer), occasionally a masculine name. [1] The Clan from whom the Allison family descends began among the ancient Dalriadan kingdom of the west coast of Scotland. Their name comes from the name for the son of “Ellis” or Ellis’ son. Conversely, the surname could be is derived from “Alice” as in “the son of Alice.” It is likely though that the name was derived from “Ellis” rather than the female personal name. [2]

History, Genealogy & Ancestry
The surname was first recorded in England in 1248, when a “William Alisun” is recorded in the Documents of the Abbey of Bee in Buckinghamshire. In Scotland, the earliest record dates from 1296, when “Patrick Alissone, Count of Berwick” paid homage to the ruling council of Scotland in the absence of a proclaimed king. [5] The stream has been traced to its fountain, the river to its source, and the Allisons to their homes in Scotland of many centuries ago. There, among its moors, its mountains, and its glens, they have lived till the present, while collateral lines of this ancient stock, about whom lingers the love of the freedom of Scotland’s mountains, struck out into other lands, have enlarged and become strong, numerous, prosperous, and vigorous. The Allisons have won homes and reputations not only in Scotland, but in England, Ireland, Australia, South America, Canada, and in nearly every state of the great American common-wealth, the United States.

A fascination, deep and abiding, clings to the ancient home of the family at Loupe, Argyleshire, and at Cairnduff, Avondale, Lanarkshire, Scotland. The matter relating to those homes and to those lines of the family are of preeminent value and absorbing interest. By the publication of this volume kll of this information and history is permanently preserved. The Allison family, taken as a whole, is strong and intellectual. In the Fatherland some of its members were martyrs for the “Solemn League and Covenant,” and elsewhere contended, even unto death, for religious freedom, while others continued the struggle in Ireland, and later crossed the ocean and maintained the finally successful battle on American soil. This family has loved church and state and learning. They helped found a government of, and for, and by the people. There have been many college graduates. The name Allison is found frequently in the catalogues of both European and American universities. Lawyers, physicians, ministers of the Gospel, senators, and other men high in the civil or military service of the state are among those of this stock. This is mentioned, not in a spirit of a family but as a historical fact, and that in the future, when those of other generations shall read this and see that their predecessors and relatives, who will then belong to ‘• a buried generation,” loved the school, the church, the state, it may stimulate them to higher deeds, influence them to nobler lives.

The Allanson-Allison Families
There may have been two immigrants named Thomas Allison (or Allanson) in early Cheshire County. One appears to have been Thomas Allison from Garstang, Lancashire. The other was Thomas Allanson of London, who was granted Christian Temple Manor. Dr. James W. Fisher of New Orleans feels that they were definitely two separate people.

The Allansons of London, England, and Christian Temple Manor, Maryland
1. John Allanson was b. abt 1589 and m. 19 Oct 1612 at White Chapel Elizabeth Smyth, dau. of (N) and Elizabeth (N) Smith of St. Clement Danes, Mddx., whose will dated 20 May 1646 named her daughter Elizabeth Allison and grandchildren William, John, Thomas, James, Anne, Katherine, Mary and Frances (A:11B).  John and Elizabeth (Smith) were the parents of (A): William, John, Thomas, James, Anne, Katherine, Mary and Frances.  2. Thomas Allanson, son of John and Elizabeth (Smith) Allanson, m. and was the father of (A): John, bapt. 30 April 1637 at All Hallows, London; Thomas, bapt. 6 Oct 1639 at St. Giles Cripplegate, London; and Ann, bapt. 18 Dec 1642, also at St. Giles Cripplegate.  3. Thomas Allanson, son of Thomas, was bapt 6 Oct 1639 at St. Giles, Cripplegate London (A). On 17 April 1660, as Mr. Thomas Allanson, he gave his age as 22 (CHLR A:205).  On 4 March 1661, again as Mr. Thomas Allanson, he gave his age as 24 (ARMD 53: 190 CHLR A:464) Thomas Allanson is stated by Newman possibly to have been a son of John Allanson of Norwood, Mddx. (TMFO cities the 1633 Vis. of London). Since Thomas was not baptized until 1639 it is unlikely he was the Thomas mentioned in the 1633 Visitation of London.  In 1659 Cecilius, Lord Baltimre, granted Thomas Allanson of London, Gent., 1000 acres of land for transporting into the Province at his own expense 20 persons of British descent. It is unlikely he could be the same Thomas Allison brought into Maryland at about the same time as a servant. This tract of land was in Cheshire County, on the Mattawoman (later St. Thomas) Creek. The land was called Christian Temple Manor. Donnell M. Owings, in ‘Private Manors, An Edited List,’ MHM 33:324, stated that Christian Temple Manor was laid out for 1000 acres in Chicamuxen Hundred, Cheshire County, and by 1705 had been divided into small plantations. In 1661 Allanson came into court, and appointed John Brown his attorney to take care of his affairs as he intended to make a journey into England. On 1 May 1662 he was still in Maryland as he witnessed an assignment of land from James Lensey to Hugh Griffith (ARMD 53:218). In 1662 Hugh Griffith of Ratclife, Mddx, England, appointed his friend Thomas Allanson ‘ of London, England now bound out to Virginia’ to be his lawful attorney to sell all of Griffith’s land in Virginia and Maryland. On 18 Sep 1662 Thomas Allanson was in London when he married Mary Roberts at St. James’ Clerkenwell, London (Newman cites published copy of parish register at the Maryland Historical Society). Newman adds that she was the sister of Edward Roberts who also settled in Maryland. In 1662 Mary (Roberts) Allanson was transported to Maryland. By 31 Jan 1662/3 Thomas Allanson and wife were back in Maryland when he witnessed a promissory note. 4 Sep 1663 Thomas Allanson of Christian Temple in Cheshire County conveyed 100 acres by deed of gift to John Browne and Gerrit Browne. 9 Jan 1664 Thomas Allanson and wife Mary sold 300 acres part of Allanson’s Folly, to Thomas Allcock. On 13 March 1665 Thomas Allanson of Cheshire County., Gent., conv. to William Boyden 450 acres The Doages Neck. No wife joined in this deed. 28 May 1673 Thomas Allanson and wife Mary conv. 200 acres of St. John’s (patented to Allanson) to John Posey. On 15 Jan 1676 Edward Roberts of Cheshire County made a will dated 15 Jan 1676, proved 22 Nov 1677, appointing Thomas Allanson as his exec., and naming Thomas’ children, Charles and Eliza. Roberts gave to the Allanson children all his property both real and personal, including property in England left him by his uncle John Reede and his grandfather George Reede.  In Aug 1676 Thomas Allanson was summoned to court to answer a suit of Garrett Van Swearingen. In Sept 1678 Thomas Allison brought a man servant into court to have his age judged. On 3 Sep 1684, Jonathan Squires of SM County sold 250 acres of land to Thomas Allison (or Alliston) of Westmoreland County Virginia, suggesting that Thomas Allanson/Allison may have moved to Virginia temporarily.  Allanson died 9 Nov 1684 when Philip Pyne of SM County came into court and entered a caveat that no one should administer the estate of Thomas Allanson, of Cheshire County deceased until Pyne should be paid 5000 lbs of tobacco.  Thomas and Mary (Roberts) Allanson were the parents of at least two children: Charles b. abt 1676 who m. Susanna Pose and Eliza.

The Allisons of Garstang
1. Thomas Allison m. on 25 Aug 1636 at St. Mary’s Parish, Lancaster, Elizabeth Jackson, b. abt 1616. They were parents of Thomas. 2. Thomas Allison, son of Thomas, was brought to Maryland by Owen Jones who deposed in the Provincial Court, in 1659, that he shipped three servants aboard the ship Leopold and that one of these were Thomas Allison. In a deed dated 8 Aug 1659, between Richard Smith of ‘Potomocke’, planter, and Thomas Allison, he described himself as a son of Thomas Allison of Gaston, Lancashire. [11]

Allison
Ancient Scotch family; lineage traced to Alister or Alexander, son of Angus Nor of the clan of Donald.  James was at Boston, Mass., in 1644.  Lawrence, first at Watertown, Mass., removed to Wethersfield, Conn., thence to Stamford, Conn., finally to Hempstead.  Ralph granted lands at Scarborough, Maine in 1673. [13]

Allison’s aboard the Titanic
Hudson Joshua Creighton Allison (December 9, 1881– April 15, 1912), his wife, Bess Waldo Allison (née Daniels) (November 14, 1886– April 15, 1912), their daughter, Helen Loraine Allison (June 5, 1909 – April 15, 1912), and son, Hudson Trevor Allison (May 7, 1911– August 7, 1929), were 1st class passengers on board the RMS Titanic, which struck an iceberg and sank on April 15, 1912. Only Trevor survived. The Allisons, bound for Montreal, booked first-class passage on the Titanic. They boarded the ship in Southampton along with four servants: a maid, Sarah Daniels (no relation to Bess); a nurse, Alice Cleaver; a cook, Amelia Mary Brown (Mildred); and a butler, George Swane. Hudson and Bess occupied cabin C-22, Sarah and Loraine occupied C-24, and Alice and Trevor occupied C-26. Two second-class cabins were also booked for George and Mildred. Hudson and Bess were dining companions with Major Arthur Godfrey Peuchen. At dinner on 14 April, they brought Loraine to the dining room with them so she could see how pretty it was. After the ship struck the iceberg, Hudson left to find out what was going on. While he was gone, Alice took Trevor and went to get the rest of the servants in second class. Hudson returned to find them gone. He delivered Bess and Loraine to Boat 6, and apparently left before it was launched. Major Peuchen recalled how they were almost rescued: ‘Mrs. Allison could have gotten away in perfect safety, but somebody told her Mr. Allison was in a boat being lowered on the opposite side of the deck, and with her little daughter she rushed away from the boat. Apparently she reached the other side to find that Mr. Allison was not there. Meanwhile our boat had put off.’ George saw Alice, Mildred, and Trevor safely into Boat 11, which left the ship at around 1:45 am, nearly an hour after Boat 6 had. Sarah had gone up on deck early to investigate the commotion and was hurriedly placed into a boat by a steward who promised to inform the Allisons of her whereabouts. Varying stories claim that Alice panicked and grabbed Trevor, without informing Bess that she was leaving, and that Bess refused to leave the ship without him, though it is possible that the entire group went up on deck together, and that Alice and Trevor were simply lost in the crowd. Hudson, Bess, Loraine, and George were lost in the sinking. Whether or not George found the Allisons and informed them that Trevor was safely off the ship is unknown, but if he did, it is likely the information came too late for any of them to leave the ship. Bess was one of only four first-class women (including Ida Straus and Edith Corse Evans) who perished, while Loraine was the only child of first and second class to do so. Hudson’s body was the 135th recovered by the Mackay-Bennett; George’s was the 294th. Hudson’s was brought to be buried in the family plot in Maple Ridge Cemetery near Winchester, Ontario. Alice and Trevor were met in New York City by Hudson’s brother, George, who, along with his wife, Lillian, took custody of the now orphaned Trevor. He died on August 7, 1929, at age 18 of food poisoning. He was buried beside his father. [14]
