The distinguished surname Piron is thought to be derived from "Pyrton," the name of an ancient village located near Watlington in Oxfordshire which is itself derived from the Old English "pere-tun," meaning "pear-tree farm."

Piron Early Origins



The surname Piron was first found in Oxfordshire, where the Piron family held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. After the Battle of Hastings in 1066, William, Duke of Normandy, having prevailed over King Harold, granted most of Britain to his many victorious Barons. They adopted the Norman system of surnames which identified the under-tenant with his holdings so as to distinguish him from the senior stem of the family. Hence, conjecturally, the Piron family is descended from the tenant of the parish of Pyrton.
