Balson Family History
Balson Name Meaning
English (Dorset): possibly a variant of the habitational name Balsdon which is most probably from Great Boulsdon in Newent (Gloucestershire) Balstone in Buckland Monachorum or Bulstone in Branscombe (both Devon). Alternatively it may be derived from a Middle English personal name derived from an unattested Old English personal name formed with beald ‘bold’ + stān ‘stone’). Compare Bolson and Balsam .
