Anglo-Saxon name Byndon comes from when the family resided in Dorset.
Early Origins of the Byndon family
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 Byndon family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Byndon or a variant listed above: Joseph Bindon who settled in New York state in 1775.
