Multiple Origins for the Surname Leyden



Leyden Early Origins



The surname Leyden was first found in Liddane, where they held a family seat as Chiefs in Tipperary. Irish history was greatly influenced by the Norman invasion of 1172, and thereafter, the surnames of Irish Gaelic clanns and septs and many of the Norman families became almost indistinguishable.
