Bynon is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Bynon family once lived in Norfolk.

The surname Bynon was first found in the county of Norfolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Bynon family name include Baynham, Bayneham, Bainham, Banham, Banam and others.

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Bynon surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
