Birone is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Birone family lived in Lancashire. The name, however, does not derive from that location, but is a reference to Beuron in Normandy, where the family lived prior to coming to England with the Norman invasion.

Early Origins of the Birone family


The surname Birone was first found in Lancashire, at Woolstone, with Martinscroft, a township, in the parish and union of Warrington, hundred of West Derby. "In the 20th of Edward I., John Byrun claimed free warren here in right of his wife Alesia, heiress of Robert Banastre." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Another branch of the family was found at Hucknall-Torkard in Nottinghamshire. "The church [of Hucknall-Torkard] is an ancient edifice, containing several monuments to different members of the Byron family, lords of Newstead Abbey, about two miles distant. Here lie the remains of the late celebrated poet, who was interred here, on the 16th of July, 1824, in the family vault: in the chancel is a neat mural monument, with an appropriate inscription. There is also a monument to his ancestor, Richard, Lord Byron, who, with seven brothers, faithfully served Charles I. during the civil war, and sustained great losses and hardships on account of loyalty to that monarch."

Migration of the Birone family to the New World and Oceana


In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Birones to arrive on North American shores: Elizabeth Byron who settled in Barbados in 1664; Sunnell Byron settled in Virginia in 1663; William Byron settled in Virginia in 1776.

The Birone Motto

The Birone Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Crede Byron
Motto Translation: Trust Byron.
