Hi Andrew,
I expect that if you have already found very basic information, that
is about as much as a Researcher would turn up for a $3 question.  You
might read the FAQs on pricing and consider raising the price.  You
can do that by accessing this question again and changing the price. 
It would also help if you could briefly mention what you already know
or the websites you have found.

As you have know, I am sure, the surname Taylor comes from that trade: tailor.
Such names don't have a single genealogical source, thus the history
of one family has to be traced back in time, starting with known
persons and finding their parents and so on.

If you are interest in learning how and where this can be done on
internet, maybe someone can help you.

Cheers, Myoarin

Here's a bit of information I found off of Geneology:

Definition: An English occupational name for a tailor, from Old French
"tailleur" for "tailor" which comes from the Latin "taliare," meaning
"to cut." It is among the most commonly found surnames, due to its
popularity as a medieval occupation.
Surname Origin: English

As for the history of it, this site is completely devoted to the
history of the Taylor Genealogy, and I would reccommend taking a good
look at it:

Other than that, there are many other genealogy resources that may be
able to help you, such as:
