The distinguished surname Teylour is one of the many names that came to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Old French "tailleor" or "tailleur," meaning "a tailor." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Teylour arrived in North America very early: Achsah Taylor, who arrived in Salem, Massachusetts in 1630; James Taylor, who emigrated Dumfries to Virginia in the 1600's, Abraham Taylor, who settled in Virginia in 1664.
