"ACHESON, AICHESON, ATTCHESON, AJTCHISON, ATKINSON.
These five names all mean
'son of Adam', the first four from the
diminutive Atty, and the last from the diminutive
Adkin with the d sharpened to t. Johannes
filius Ade, custumar of North Berwick in 1384,
appears in 1387 as John Atkynsoun, and in
following years again as Johannes filius Ade
(ER., ra, p. 119, 152, 171, etc.). John
Atkynsoun is recorded as a forestaller in Aberdeen
in 1402 (CRA., p. 385), and William Atkinson
was servitor to Sir Symon Glendonwyne in 1408
(Bain, iv, 768). Laing gives the seal of Thomas
Atkinson of Bonkyll as bearing on a chevron
three buckles and with the legend S' Thomas
filius Ade appended to an indenture of 1429
(Seals. Supp., 53; Macdonald, 51). William
Atkynson was bedellus in Aberdeen in 1436
(REA., i, p. 234), John Atkinson was
admitted burgess of Aberdeen in 1437 and
Andrew Atkynson in 1442 (NSCM., I, p. 5,
7), and John Atzinson was vicar of
Morton in 1475 (Kelso, 532). Patrick Atzensone
was clerk of the diocese of Glasgow in 1479
(Home, 23), William Atyknson, a native of
Scotland, had letters of denisation in England
in 1480 (Bain, rv, 1462), and George Aczinson
in Lanark, who was ordered to "stand under
the cownt of the breid imis" in 1490, appears
again in 1498 as George Aczin (Lanark, p. 7,
9). Patrick Atzensone was notary-public in
Jedworth, 1500 (PSAS., ux, p. 102), William
Ackynson was a juror in Lanark in 1501 (ibid.,
p. 11), and from Marc Aichesone who was
custumar of the Newhewin of Prestone in 1590
(ER., xxn, p. 89) the haven may have been
derived the name of Achesounes hevin (1609),
now Morrisons Haven in the parish of
Prestonpans. John Achisoune was re toured heir of his
father James Achisone of Bodisbek in 1676
(Retours, Dumfries, 281), and Mr. John
Echesone was schoolmaster at the village of
Killbryde in 1680 (Hunter, p. 64). The name of
Magnus Attkinsone, tacksman in Garth in
Harray in 1492, may be a misreading of
Awkinsone (= Hakon's son, Hauquinus was the
Latinized form of Hakon, REO., p. 408). A
family of this name was long connected with the
Scottish Mint in the fifteenth and sixteenth
centuries. James Aitchesoun, 'Maister
Gunyear,' was ordered to coin "babeis" (bawbees)
in 1553 (RFC., i, p. 152). Achenson 1525,
Acheson 1539, Achesoun 1497, Achesune 1591,
Achieson 1673, Achiesoun 1635, Achinsoun
1538, Achisone 1557, Aitchesoune 1610,
Aitchysoune 1670, Aschesone 1556, Atchesone
1692, Atchisone 1624, Atyesoun 1540, Atzeson
and Etzesone 1531, and (undated)
