Carlson - history

Carlson is a Germanic surname, ultimately originating in Scandinavia but traveling to England as well. It is a patronymic, meaning "son of Carl", of which Charles is a variation, from which we also get Charleston. Carlson family history begins in 1221 with the recording of Frethesant Cherl on the county charter of Cambridgeshire, London, though the use of Carl or Charles as a given name is noted several years earlier with Carolus on the Suffolk Curia Rolls in 1208. Carlson genealogy boasts illustrious personages such as Arne Carlson, two-term governor of Minnesota; FOX personality Gretchen Carlson; and conservative pundit Tucker Carlson.
