Teron's of the World

The Spanish Connection


There are many Terron's with Spanish first names though we have never made a genealogical connection between them or between the Spanish Terron's and the Teron's from Bukovina.

There are a possible way we could be related. A large numbers of Bukovinians emigrated in the 1890's to Brazil. Most perished due to the unfamiliar conditions there. Some of these people migrated north. In 1897's, the emigration shifted away from Brazil to Canada.


Spain

We have communicated with José Luis Terrón Ponce in Madrid, Spain. This is his description of his family. "My family proceed of a region to the northwest of Spain designated Maragatería in the province of Leon. There, a long time ago, were living a small ethnic group of unknown origin who today have disappeared, called Maragatos. The legend says that they were falling of a Gothic king called Mauregato, who invaded Spain with a German people (the visigodos) in the Middle Ages, defeating to the Romans. In any case, the surname Terrón in Spain is rare. In the telephone book of Madrid, where I live, there are only about forty Terron's, in a city of more than 3 million inhabitants."
