Name Meaning

English (Lincolnshire, Rutland and Northamptonshire): altered form of Dutch Trion, itself a shortened variant of Tirion, a cognate of Walloon and French Thiry .

History: A Northamptonshire family of this name trace their descent from Peter Trieon (died 1611), who went to England from the Netherlands c. 1562. His son, Moses Tryon, was high sheriff of Northamptonshire in 1624. William Tryon (born 1729 in Surrey, England) was the last provincial governor of NY; he gave his name to Tryon County, the district which took in the Mohawk Valley; after the American Revolution this huge area was split into Montgomery, Fulton, and other counties.
