The Anglo-Saxon name Bebington comes from the family having resided in the Wirral Peninsula where they were from Bebington, near Birkenhead. Bebbe comes from the Anglo-Saxon babbe, which means protector.


Bebington has been spelled many different ways, including Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime.

In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Bebingtons to arrive on North American shores: Anne Bevington who settled in Virginia in 1660; Francis Bevington landed in America in 1772; Thomas Bevinton settled in Virginia in 1650.
