Burson Name Meaning

English: unexplained; apparently a patronymic, but from an unidentified medieval personal name. It may be a variant of Barson. On the other hand, there appears to be a French connection with the villages of Hardanges and La Chapelle au Riboul, whence bearers of this name are recorded as having emigrated to Canada.
