How did Louzon Creek get its name?

Ben Steelman

Louzon (or Lousin) Creek, on Masonboro Island, has us stumped.

According to Jennifer Daugherty of the New Hanover County Public Library’s local history room, the names Louzon or Lousin don’t occur on any early deeds, grants or census records for the area. Neither the North Carolina Gazetteer nor any other publication seems to have an explanation for the name.
