TYRONE Family HistoryRecorded in the British Isles in a wide variety of spellings including: Terran, Terrans, Terram, Terron, Terren, Tiron, Tirone, Tyron, Tyrone and Tyren, this is an English surname. It is however almost certainly of French origins, and for most protestant nameholders probably 17th century Huguenot as well. It would seem to derive from the original personal name of the pre 7th century a.d. 'Terre' meaning earth, which forms the basis of many French surnames. These include Terree, Terrasse, Terrat, Terrien, Terrier, Terry, and Terrin, the later form being principally found in the south west of the country, which was also with Brittany and Languedoc, the main centres of protestant power in late medieval France.
