Alderson Family CrestThe English surname Alderson, chiefly found in northern England, is of patronymic origin meaning son of, or descendant of Alder. The personal name Alder is derived from  a Middle English  name, representing a falling together of two Old English names, Ealdhere meaning “ancient army” and Æ{dh}elhere meaning “noble army.”  The first record of the name is in 1540 when Richard Aldersson was  a christening witness, at Dewsbury, Yorkshire on March 10th.  A famous bearer of the name was Sir James Alderson (1794 - 1882), who was president of the College of Physicians, 1867, and was knighted 1869; he was physician-extraordinary to the Queen, 1874.
