Nystrom Family History

This is a late medieval topographic name for one resident by a 'new stream'. The name is Scandinavian and specifically Swedish and presumably refers to a person who dwelt by a 'canal' i.e. a man made 'stream' or possibly a stream created by geographical change, and for which a suitable word did not exist. The name derives from the Old Norse pre 7th century 'straumr' - later 'strom' meaning a river or wide stream, and 'ny' - new. The name is first found recorded in England in Yorkshire and London in the early 19th century.
