The name Bindom is of Anglo-Saxon
origin and came from when the family lived in Dorset.
Early Origins of the Bindom family
The surname Bindom 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.CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Bindom family to the New World and Oceana
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Bindom or a variant listed above: Joseph Bindon who settled in New York state in 1775.
