Byrd Genealogy & History

Byrd is a surname of Anglo-Saxon origin, coming from the Old English bridde, meaning bird, which became brid and then bird in Middle English. It is thought to have been a nickname comparing someone to a bird, either being bright and active or having a good singing voice. Recorded Byrd family history began with Earnald Brid of Yorkshire, enrolled in 1193. Byrd genealogy includes three senators from the Virginias: Harry F. Byrd of Virginia, his son Harry F. Byrd Jr. of Virginia, and Robert Byrd of West Virginia, who is not related to the Byrds of Virginia.
