Artso is not a Chinese surname. Venture to guess that it was your gggf's personal name. The "Art" was probably a corruption of the sound "Ah" which is just an appellation, while "so" was his personal name. To find the real Chinese surname you need to know what was before Artso.

: Hi there, My great great grand father moved to Australia from Canton in the late 1800's the surname was Artso, but I don't know how this is written in Chinese, and how I can find my ancestors without knowing the correct spelling?
