Theron the tyrant
The earliest reference to the Therons dates back to Theron the Tyrant - a Greek tyrant in the town of Acragas in Sicily from 488 BC. Under the reign of Theron, Acragas with Syracuse and Selinunte (with its pro-Carthaginian line) formed a kind of "triumvirate" which would dominate the Greek Sicily at the time. Theron died in 473 BC and was briefly succeeded by his son Thrasydaeus.

The French Huguenots
The Therons were amongst the French huguenots, Protestants in France who, following the Edict of Fontainebleau in 1685, fled to surrounding Protestant countries: England, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark and Prussia (with estimates ranging from 200,000 to 1,000,000).
