The ancestors of the bearers of the Byndom family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in Dorset.

Byndom Early Origins



The surname Byndom 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]

Byndom Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Byndom include Bindon, Byndon and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Byndom or a variant listed above: Joseph Bindon who settled in New York state in 1775.
