Name Meaning

Scottish (Galloway) and northern Irish: probably a habitational name from an unlocated place in southwestern Scotland called Acarson or Carsan. This surname was taken to Northern Ireland in the early 17th century. Alternatively, it may be a hybrid patronymic name composed of Irish cearr ‘left-handed’ + English son ‘son’.

English: variant of Corston, a habitational name from one of the many places so called in Norfolk, Shropshire, Somerset, or Wiltshire.

In some cases also an Americanized form of Norwegian Kåsen (see Kasen ).
