Pearson Family Crest
The English, Welsh, and Irish surname Pearson is derived from from the personal name Piers, the usual Norman vernacular form of Peter. In Wales this represents a patronymic ap Piers. In Ireland it represents a reduced Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Piarais ‘son of Piaras’, a Gaelicized form of Piers. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Gilbert Perse, which was dated 1198, in the "London Pipe Rolls." One "Danyell Pierce" was an early settler in America, leaving Ipswich on the "Elizabeth", bound for New England, in 1634.
