The Byam family is of ancient
BYAM Welsh 'origin. Like most Welsh

names that have been anglicized,
Byam is very unlike the original from which it
is derived. Evan is a personal and baptismal
name common in Wales. The prefix Ap in
Welsh is equivalent to Mac and De and Fitz,
and means "son of." John Ap Adam, for
instance, means John, son of Adam, and Will-
iam Ap Evan, William, son of Evan. Thus
Ap-Evan is of the same class of surnames as
Richardson, Johnson, Jackson, etc., in English.
Ap-Evan was spelled Ap-yevan for a time,
then Abyevan, Abyan and Abyam. In fact we
find in one single document, the will of Will-

iam Byam, of Bath, in 1570, the three spell-
ings : Abyan, Abyam and Byam. The sur-
name Abyam is found in the Subsidy Rolls for
1545, and the spelling Byam came into use
about this time. In fact the testator in the will
mentioned spelled his name Byam as early as
1535, as witness to the will of Isabella Chan-
cellor, of Bath.

The armorial bearings of the Byam family
are as follows: I. Argent three dragons' or
wiverns' heads erased vert, each holding in his
mouth a dexter hand, couped at the wrist,
dropping blood, originally derived fromTegau's
Euron, the daughter and heir of King Pelinor,
and wife of Caradoc Craich-Vras ; and, in an
after age, exclusively borne by their descend-
ant Rhys Goch, living in the eleventh century.
2. Sable, a chevron between three spear heads
argent, their points embrued, for Caradoc him-
self. 3. Gules a lion rampant or, for Elistam
Glodrydd, founder of one of the royal tribes
of Wales. 4. Gules, three towers triple turreted
argent for Gowel. Prince of Caerlon, and living
in the twelfth century. 5. Vert a chevron be-
. tween three wolves' heads for Joanett. daugh-
ter and heir of Grono ap Traharne ap Blaeth
ap Elvareh. Lord of Penrhos. 6. Argent a
cross gules for Burgh — De-Burgh, the same as
the Marquis of Clanricarde — the late Viscounts
and present Earls of Mayo, etc. The Byams,
of Selworthy, Somersetshire, bear : Vert two
branches of laurel between four pheons argent.
Crest : A wolf passant or collared and lined
ermine.

From the relative size of the family in the
old country and the peculiar derivation of the
surname, it is fair to presume that all the
Byams are descended from Ievan ap Jenkin,
whose sons were called Ap Ievan, and descend-
ants of his sons John and Thomas took the
surname Byam. The ancestry of this Ievan is
traced to the first century, according to the
College of Arms, certified in 1841. and is
a remarkable pedigree, originating with the
princes of Wales: I. Llyr Llediaith. 2. Bran,
a hostage at Rome. 3. Caradoc or Carac-
tacus. 4. Eudaf. 5. Cynan. 0. Cadvan, King

for some centuries over the territory between
the Wye and Severn, and over Brecknock, till
after the Norman invasion, in fact, till Bleddin
was slain in 1090. He married Tegau'r Eur-
vron, daughter of Pelinor, King of Gwent. 13.

scended from Caradoc, Earl of Hereford and

mouth, living June 20, 1456, married daughter
of Llewelyn ap Qwillim ap Rhys Lloyd ap
Adam, of Brecknockshire. 26. Ievan ap Jen-
kyn. in book entitled "Descendants of Caradoc
Vraich-Cras, penes Heralds College." Chil-
dren : 1. Thomas ap Ievan, mentioned in Bath
Subsidy Rolls, 1523; married Joan, daughter
of Llewelyn ap Gwillim. 2. John ap Ievan, of
Bath, county Somerset, mentioned in Subsidy
Roll. 1523. died about 1541 ; his son. William
ap Ievan, spelled the name Byam as early as
1535. From the elder brother descends the
present family of county Pembroke.

The surname Canterbury

CANTERBURY is of ancient English

origin, derived from the

place name. In the early American records it



is also spelled Cantlebury, Cantilbury, etc.
There were two immigrants of the family in
Massachusetts among the first settlers, Cor-
nelius and William, mentioned below.

Cornelius Canterbury came to Hingham,
Massachusetts, as early as 1639. He lived on
Town (now North ) street, near Thaxter

was constable in 1672. He was a cooper by

1710. He died October 21, 1683. His daugh-
ters, Ann Barnes, Mary, Elizabeth, Sarah,
Hannah and Esther, petitioned January 29,
1683. Ior the division of his estate, as he was
unable to make a will in his last sickness, and
agreed that their mother should have one-
seventh of the estate and twenty shillings a
year from each of them. But the estate was
not divided until September 14, 171 1, when
five daughters and one grandson, John Barnes,
each received a sixth, the mother having died
in the meantime, showing that no heirs bear-
ing the Canterbury name survived. Children :
1. John, born July 17, 1652. died January 13,

England and settled as early as 1638 in Salem,
of which he was a proprietor at that time. He
was in Lynn in 1641. He died June 1, 1663.
He appears to have been a fisherman and
owned a "fishing lot." His will was proved
July 3. 1663, bequeathing to wife Beatrice,
son John, daughters Ruth and Rebecca, and
the latter's children, Joseph and Mary. The
estate was divided July 29, 1684, after the

in Weymouth for two years, when he received
a call to become cashier of the Union Bank

of Nathan Peaks and Elizabeth A. (Bates)
Canterbury, was born at East Weymouth, Sep-

common schools of his native town and of
Braintree. He became associated with his
father in boot and shoe" manufacture in East
Weymouth, and the two were thus associated
until 1869, when the father withdrew. Nathan
D. continued the business alone until 1875,
when he formed a partnership with Richard G.
Haskell. In 1883 the firm dissolved, and Mr.
Canterbury continued the business alone until
1887. In that year he opened a real estate
office in Boston with his son, Charles D., and
this association was continued until the death
of the latter named in 1900, since which time
Mr. Canterbury has given his attention to
banking. In 1872 his father and himself
organized the Weymouth Savings Bank, and
he was one of the first directors. About five
years later he was made a member of the
board of investment, and is yet serving in that
capacity. After some years service as vice-
