The name Byller is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone who worked as a bell-founder or a bellringer. The surname Byller is derived from the Old English word belle, which means bell.

Byller Early Origins



The surname Byller 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



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 Byller or a variant listed above: Martin Biller, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1732.
