An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The surname Dye was first found in Yorkshire
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1301 when Walter Dye held estates near Wakefield.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Dye, Tie, Dy, Dei and others.
