An In-Depth Study, including a Genealogy and Family History, of One Single Unique JAMESON Family

This website is devoted to the study, genealogy and family history of a distinct, independent, stand alone, Jameson family. There are many families with the surname Jameson, most however, are not related. We are just one.

The Jameson surname, in any of its various spellings, was created of need by many to mean the son of James. Most who first used this surname were totally different and unrelated people. Thus, there are many unrelated Jameson families, all over the world, with the same surname. The difference between distinct Jameson families can be easily determined (and thereby proven) by DNA from the Y chromosome, as is the case with this family.

Our knowledge of this particular Jameson family begins in the early 1700's when several Ulster-Scots Jamesons emigrated from Northern Ireland and put down roots in Colonial New Hampshire. Since that time descendants of this Jameson family have migrated throughout this country and beyond.

Principal patriarchs: Jonathan Jameson - Hugh Jameson - Thomas Jameson

Included herein are corrections and additions as well as the continuation of genealogies of this specific early Colonial New Hampshire Jameson family as presented by E. O. Jameson in his 1901 publication "The Jameson's in America 1647-1900".[S2] 

A significant amount of what can be found on this website is a result of the personal research and generous sharing of information about this family, by many people, without which much would have gone untold. If you have any interest in or knowledge of this family and it's descendants, we'd love to hear from you. In fact, we strongly urge you to contact us.
