Nicholai Aerson 1570ish
« on: Friday 25 January 19 16:52 GMT (UK) »
Hello. I am trying to trace any records of Nicholai Aerson. His children were all born in Kirkdale in North Yorkshire between 1592 and 1604. His children are Rosamund (1592), Margaret (1593), Petronella (1597), Alice (1602) and Elizabeth (1604). I am guessing that he was born around 1570 but I can find no record any where in the UK. Given his foreign sounding name, could he have been an immigrant? Perhaps Scandanavia or Eastern Europe. Does any one have any leads?

I would say almost certainly from Scandinavia. There was a lot of trade between there & Northern Britain & Scotland. So possibly a mariner of some description who settled in Yorks.
Kirkdale isn't that far from the coast.

I've just had a quick look at one of the entries, and as I suspected, the register is written in Latin. So Nicholai isn't a foreign name, just the Latin for Nicholas. (To be precise, it's the genitive case, meaning "of Nicholas".)

Aerson (or Airson, as in some entries) is an uncommon surname, fairly localised to that area. George Redmonds' Dictionary of Yorkshire Surnames suggests it (and variants) might be connected with the place name Ayrsome.

I suspected that Nicholai may have been Nicholas but there are no records for Nicholas Aerson either. I suspected that the family may be immigrants because one of the daughters was called Petronella

Petronella is the femail form of the name Peter and is a common name in the Netherlands.
Other pre-names names like Nicholai is Latin form of Nicholas and some church parish records used Latin Christian names for the records even though the named child was likely called by their English name (not the Latin one).
I came across this when following my family history across Warwickshire, Leictershire and Derbyshie. I noticed some people with my family name in Stapenhill, Derbyshire in mid 1600's had unusual Christian names like Ratam (Indian name), Gulieln, Roberti, Johis, Johannis. With the exception of Ratam, other names are Latin forms of William, Robert, John and Joseph.

There were some Arsons in the Hawnby/Bilsdale area, not far from Kirkdale, from at least early 1500's.

There are various spellings Arson/Areson/Ayreson etc
