The surname Roberson, found principally in the north of England and Scotland, first recorded in Scotland in the mid 15th Century, is a patronymic form of the male given name Rober, itself coming from Robert with the loss of the final "t". On October 5th 1657 Alisone, daughter of Alexander Robersone, was christened in Newton Midlothian, Scotland, and in November 1723 Elizabeth Roberson was christened in St. Botolph without Aldgate, London. This form travelled through France, and from there to Northern American territory, especially Wyoming. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Andrew Robersoun, (witness to the sale of a tenement), which was dated 1450, "The Register of Aberbrothock Abbey", during the reign of King James 11, of Scotland, 1437 - 1460.
