Name Meaning

English (northern): from the Middle English personal name Harry or Herry + -son. These were the common pronunciations of Henry (see Harry ).

History: Harrison is an extremely common surname in northern England. One important and influential American family of bearers are descended from Benjamin Harrison, who emigrated from England to VA in 1633 or 1634. Descendants include another Benjamin Harrison (c. 1726–91), who was an activist in the American Revolution and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. His son William Henry Harrison (1773–1841) and great-grandson Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901) both became presidents of the US.
