It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Bussone are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Bussone include Byrom, Byram, Byrum, Birom, Biram and others.

Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Bussone, or a variant listed above: John Byrom who settled in Virginia in 1656; William Byrom settled in Virginia in 1736; Benjamin, Brambley, Edward, James, Ralph, and Samuel Byram, all arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between 1827 and 1844..
