    Name Meaning

    English: occupational name for the servant of a parish priest or parson, from the possessive case of Middle English persone, parsoun (see Parson ).

    English: many early examples are found with the prepositions (e.g. Ralph del Persones 1323); these are habitational names, with the omission of house, hence in effect occupational names for servants employed at the parson's house.

    English: post-medieval variant of Parson , with excrescent -s. Alternatively, Parson may be a shortened form of Parsons.
