Tryon Family, Flemish weavers in London, England
« on: Wednesday 05 January 11 07:53 GMT (UK) »

Seeking information on the Tryon families in London, England and in Bibury, Gloucester, England.

They were Flemish weavers; thought to have come from Ypres and Antwerp.

One Tryon weaver in a early records book was said to have lived in the house with the 'worm on the hook'

Would like to know more about this family, where they lived in Belgium and when they arrived in England.

The name does appear in the list of Strangers in the metropolis for London during the reign of Elizabeth I

1559, 1576, 1582, 1594 & 1600 Peter Tryon, alias Trewel, of Flanders

Probably this same man noted also  in 1571:  "Peter Trewe(l) and Marie his wife of Antwerp, Merchant and Denison having been in this ward for years, and has 3 children and a man servant."

1582, 1583, 1597 Garret Tryon, a Dutch Silk Twister

1600  Moises Tryon


After 1556 Phillip II became ruler in the Netherlands, and as a zealous Catholic, great persecution began there against the Protestants, under the Spanish inquistion, which eventually ended up in all out revolt, and after decades of struggle, the independance of the northern states, the basis of modern day Holland. So given the timing the Tryons may well have been amongst the religious refugees fleeing this persecution, and could have used the Dutch church in london which was opened by them in the 1550's. That said economic migrants had been coming from this area of the Netherlands for at least two hundred years before this, though in much smaller numbers.

There is something on Peter Tryon there that says he was a refugee from the persecutions under the Duke of Alvah (Phillip II's brother in law and ruling regent in the Netherlands) though they give the year 1562 as the year he fled. He was listed on the strangers returns for 1559 so that cannot be 100% accurate.
