IRONS Family History

Although generally accepted to be a surname of Scottish origins, recent research has brought to light a possible "french" connection, as explained below. In Scotland the name is locational and deriving from "the lands of Irnys" in Augus where the name is first recorded in the 15th Century, however coincidently although "Irnys" does translate as "Iron", certain early huguenot refugees from France called "Hieron" (the name meaning the dweller by the sands) were anglicised as Irons, the name first being recorded in London in 1582 when one Edmund Irons was married.
