As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Beasley has been recorded under many different variations, including Beazley, Beasley, Beasely, Beesely, Beesley, Bezley, Beasey and many more.

Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Beasley or a variant listed above:
