The name STEPHEN comes from the Greek "Stephanos" meaning wreath or garland. It is a biblical name first brought to these shores by the Normans prior to 1066. It was a popular name and spread rapidly through England into Wales and Ireland as well as Scotland. The Steven spelling tends to be more common in Scotland and STEVENSON is "son of Steven". The name first appears (in one form or another) in old Scottish records as early as 1286 when Ada Stephani was a burgess of Elgin. Nichol Steven, chaplain of Scotland, had "license to take shipping at London or Dovorre at pleasure in 1372". John Steywynson was "one of the surveyors of the marches" near Banff in 1388. Henricus Stephani had a charter of land in Ayr in 1409. The origin and distribution of the name clearly indicates that they could not have been of one decent and that numerous lines evolved, particularly so with its establishment as a territorial name e.g. Stevenston (Steven's town), one of Ayrshire's "Three Towns" men!
