Origin of Surname

This is an English surname which has been present in Jersey since the late 17th century, and possibly earlier. It means 'son of Nicholas', which is ultimately a biblical name. Introduced into Europe by returning Crusader knights from the Holy Land in the 12th century, it derives from the ancient Greek name "Nikolaos", which translates as "victory-people".

Early records

It appears that two Nicholson families, possibly with no connection, became established in Jersey around the turn of the 17th century.
