  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Hiram 
  high-born.  (1.)  Generally  "Huram,"  one  of  the  sons  of  Bela  (1 
  Chr.  8:5). 
 
  (2.)  Also  Huram"  and  "Horam,"  king  of  Tyre.  He  entered  into 
  an  alliance  with  David,  and  assisted  him  in  building  his  palace 
  by  sending  him  able  workmen,  and  also  cedar-trees  and  fir-trees 
  from  Lebanon  (2  Sam.  5:11;  1  Chr.  14:1).  After  the  death  of 
  David  he  entered  into  a  similar  alliance  with  Solomon,  and 
  assisted  him  greatly  in  building  the  temple  (1  Kings  5:1;  9:11; 
  2  Chr.  2:3).  He  also  took  part  in  Solomon's  traffic  to  the 
  Eastern  Seas  (1  Kings  9:27;  10:11;  2  Chr.  8:18;  9:10). 
 
  (3.)  The  "master  workman"  whom  Hiram  sent  to  Solomon.  He  was 
  the  son  of  a  widow  of  Dan,  and  of  a  Tyrian  father.  In  2  Chr. 
  2:13  "Huram  my  father"  should  be  Huram  Abi,  the  word  Abi" 
  (rendered  here  "my  father")  being  regarded  as  a  proper  name  or 
  it  may  perhaps  be  a  title  of  distinction  given  to  Huram,  and 
  equivalent  to  "master."  (Comp.  1  Kings  7:14;  2  Chr.  4:16.)  He 
  cast  the  magnificent  brazen  works  for  Solomon's  temple  in 
  clay-beds  in  the  valley  of  Jordan,  between  Succoth  and  Zarthan. 
 
 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]:
