The name Billier finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a bell-founder or a bellringer. The surname Billier is derived from the Old English word belle, which means bell.

The surname Billier 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]

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Billier or a variant listed above: Martin Biller, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1732.
