Rawson Family CrestThe English surname Rawson, found mainly in Yorkshire, is a  topographic name for someone who lived at a row (a hedgerow, row of houses), from the northern Middle English term raw meaning “row.” The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be Thomas Roulfisson, which was dated 1327, in the Subsidy Rolls of the county of Cambridge. Additional early records include Richard Rawson, Johannes Raweson, and William Raufson, registered in the Yorkshire Poll tax rolls of 1379. Edmonde Rawson was recorded at St Michaels Cornhill, London, in 1570, and Reginald Rowson of Lymm, in Cheshire, is recorded in the Wills Register of Chester in 1611.
