Ancestors of Judy Dean Robinson


Welcome to my web site! Many hours of work have been put into the research and documentation of these families and individuals. I hope you will benefit from the information I present here.

When any work of this type is undertaken, it must be realized that it will never be complete. With each new generation, ancestors and family heritage are further removed and many times forgotten unless someone takes the time to record those things that should be passed on to the upcoming generations. That is the purpose of this web site.

Many hours and years have been spent and many miles have been traveled to obtain the information recorded here. Countless Court Houses and other public record repositories have been visited to gather vital bits of information. An unknown number of steps have been walked through old cemeteries to read the tombstones of those ancestors who have gone on before. Many relatives and friends have been visited and have shared their reminiscence of times gone by to make this website possible.

I want to apologize for any incorrect dates or misspelled names, but, when researching thousands of records and talking with hundreds of different people, the dates and the spelling of names will not always be in agreement with each other.

I want to thank all those relatives and friends who have helped to make this web site possible. There are so many names that could be listed that have been instrumental in this endeavor that it would be impossible to remember them all, so, again, I want to say thanks to you all.

Origin of the ROBINSON surname

Robinson is an English language patronymic surname, meaning "son of Robin (a diminutive of Robert)". There are similar surname spellings such as Robison and Robeson. It was first recorded in 1324 as Richard Robynson. A family motto was adopted "Foi est tout" meaning "Faith is all".

In Ireland, Robinson is only really common in Ulster. It is thought that the Robinsons of Glenarm may have originally been Robertsons. The two names had been used interchangeably in some areas of the province around the beginning of the 20th century.

Robinson, the compound word, is a rare given name, while its derivative, Robin, has the distinction of being both a masculine and feminine given name.
