"The original family in the U.S. spelled their name "Beeson;" however, some of the later generations began with "Beason," and a few families with the spelling "Beson." All descend from the same Edward Beeson.
Most of the Beesons now living in the U.S. are descendants of one Edward Beeson. It is said that he came to America in 1682 or 1684. . . from Stoke, Lancaster, England and settled in New Castle, below Philadelphia.
The family is of English origin and the name a corruption of Beeston, which is an old family of or near Leeds, England. . ."
