Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Bynum is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in Norfolk.
The surname Bynum was first found in the county of Norfolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.
The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Bynum has been spelled many different ways, including Baynham, Bayneham, Bainham, Banham, Banam and others.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bynums to arrive in North America:
