Reply to: Bronson, Garrison, Grayson by .

Bronson is the English transformation of Brown. The origin of Bronson is also Irish, meaning: strong, fierce one.

Garrison is the English transformation of Garrett. It is refers to a place where troops are stationed, for defense of a town or fort, or to keep the inhabitants in subjection.

Grayson is an English patronymic name formed from an occupation, meaning: grieve's son.

I found this information in a surname book at the library.
