Surname Payson, origin, meaning
Hello! My wife and I named our brand new son Payson and were interested in finding out about the origin of this name. We live in Arizona where Payson is a growing mountain town NE of Phoenix, named after a US senator >100 years ago??? and we always liked the place, and the sound of it.Any info would be helpful.We had heard that it originated in Yorkshire, England in the 1200's.
Thanks, Harry Broome
