Taylor History

The surname Taylor, also seen as Tayler and Tayleur, is of an occupational origin, coming from the word ‘tailor’, meaning a cutter of cloth. The word ‘tailor’ has roots in old French, from the word tailler meaning ‘to cut’. In Latin documents the surname is often recorded as cissor.
It is a very common name, particularly in the early Scots records.
In 1276, Alexander la Tayllur was a valet to King Alexander III, and in 1292, John le Taillur was recorded as having held the mill of Selkirk.
