BYRON Family History

This unusual name can be either locational or topographical in origin, both sources having the same derivation and therefore the same meaning i.e. "the cattle sheds". The derivation is from the Old English pre 7th Century "byrum, from "byre", a barn or byre. The surname can therefore mean either "dweller at the cattle byres", or be an occupatioinal name for one who worked there, a cowman. The placename "Byram" in West Yorkshire (first recorded as "Byrum" in the Anglo - Saxon Chronicle of c.1030) also means "place of the Cattlesheds".
