Binden is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in Dorset.

Binden Early Origins



The surname Binden was first found in Dorset at Bindon which includes Great and Little Bindon. Bindon Hill is an extensive Iron Age earthwork near Lulworth Cove and Bindon Abbey was a Cistercian monastery nearby that was founded in 1149 by William de Glastonia. While there is no doubt that the family came from this area, it is important to note that by far the greatest history of the name is found in Ireland firstly at Ballyneelough, County Tipperary c. 1580. David Bindon was the first settler, settled here and is considered to the progenitor of the family in Ireland. Later they became chiefly associated with Limerick and County Clare.[1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Binden Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Binden family name include Bindon, Byndon and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Binden surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Joseph Bindon who settled in New York state in 1775.
