Origin of the Name Jacobson

The Jacobson family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Meaning 'the son of Jacob', Jacobson is a baptismal name. Variants include Jacob, Jacoby, Jacobs, Jacobsen and Jago. It was borne in the Bible of the younger twin brother of Esau, who took advantage of the latters hunger and impetuousness to persuade him to part with his birthright 'for a mess of potage'. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a Thomas Jacoby, County Cambridgeshire, a William Jacob, County Cambridgeshire, and a William filius Jacobi, County Kent, who were all recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England , in the year 1273. A Johannes Jacobi was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. In Scotland the name is found in small numbers being introduced there from England centuries ago. In Ireland the principal families of the name descend from two seventeenth century Cromwellian officers, Captain Mathew Jacob and William Jacob. The name is mostly found in Wexford and Leix, as well as in Dublin .
The Jacobson coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Jacobson descendants.
