The many generations and branches of the Biller family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a bell-founder or a bellringer. The surname Biller is derived from the Old English word belle, which means bell.

Early Origins of the Biller family


The surname Biller was first found in Cambridgeshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times. The parish of Kirby Bellars in Leicestershire takes its name from the foundation of a college there in 1359 during the reign of Edward II. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Biller family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Biller family emigrate to North America:
