Floyds are not from Ireland, from my research. They are from Wales. The Floyd name may have been Anglicized in England near the province of Gwynedd. Clwyd was a county in Wales situated in the north-east of the country and bordered Gwynedd to its immediate west and England and Shropshire to its east and southeast. From Shropshire (Salop) in England Floyds are known to have lived. The River Clwyd is in North Wales and is from which the county derived its name. The river Lwyd (Afon Lwyd) is a small river in south Wales. In Cymraeg the name means, “Grey River.” Floyd has been interpreted to mean "Grey."
