The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Dyon family name to the British Isles. They lived in Sussex. The name, however, derives from the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Dives, Normandy.

Early Origins of the Dyon family


The surname Dyon was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.
