Where did the English Beveradge family come from? What is the English Beveradge family crest and coat of arms? When did the Beveradge family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Beveradge family history?

The name Beveradge is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived on Beverage, an island in the Severn River Estuary. The place name literally means beaver island, which explains the presence of the beaver on the family coat of arms. The surname Beveradge arises from two Old English words: beofer,which means beaver, and ige which means island. While the name Beveradge may have arisen in the southwest of England, it is generally associated with Yorkshire and Scotland.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Beveradge family name include Beveridge, Belfridge, Belfrage, Beverage, Beveradge, Bevidge, Bevige, Berridge and many more.

First found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Beveradge surname or a spelling variation of the name include : John Beveridge who settled in New England in 1685; Mary Beveridge settled in Maryland in 1774; Robert Beveridge arrived in New York in 1823; William Bevidge landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1864..
