I just received a manuscript VEDEN COLLISSON FISON lineage by Charles Fison Collisson 1943 [ARZ(Fison)(Collisson, CF; Veden, Collisson, Fison Lineage) ALA3-10; FEIN # 131887440]
On the family tree document reads "the earliest ancestor know to us is ROBERT of Langham, Suffolk who died 1748. The firm James Fison & Sons of Barningham (1761-1817) is now Fison, Parkard & Prentice, fertilizer manufacturers and maleters, Ipswich, Thetford and elsewhere. Frank Guy Clavering Fison of Ipswich, Chairman, Walter Cornell and John Fison and myself, Thetford, members. The Traditional crest is a sheaf of wheat. A deceased cousin said, with what authority I don't know, that FISON is derived from the Saxon word, "felson" meaning harvest. (signed) Cornell H. Fison.
Contact me at my email address and I will try to scan the doc for you. Ellen Veden (email@example.com)
