To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bido were among those contributors: William Beddo who settled in Virginia in 1727; Alice Bedow settled in Virginia in 1660; Andrew Bedow landed in America in 1660; John Bedow settled in Barbados in 1660..
The Bido Family Crest was acquired from the Houseofnames.com archives. The Bido Family Crest was drawn according to heraldic standards based on published blazons. We generally include the oldest published family crest once associated with each surname.
