Summerson Family Genealogy Forum
I was very interested to read your comments Trevor, as I am a Summerson from Pembrokeshire, West Wales in the UK. My father was born in Cardiff, and his father was from Sunderland. I also was told that the name was derived from the Vikings! as you mention SON - son of SUMMER. I am very keen to continue my search for my ancestors and I'm sure that many of then made their way over the 'pond'. The name is very unusual in Wales, but there are many in the Northumberland areas - there seem to be loads of us in America! Unfortunately I am the last in the line in our family, as I have no brothers, but one sister. My nephew will continue the name however as he was named Jethro Summerson Hyams.
