Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Bipewatere were recorded, including Bywater, Biwater, Byewater, Bithewater, Bipewatere, Beyewatyr, Bythewater, Bethewater and many more.

First found in West Yorkshire at Allerton Bywater, a semi-rural village and civil parish in the south-east of City of Leeds. Today Allerton Bywater is made up of old mining villages including: Brigshaw, Hollinhurst and Bowers Row and is famous for its Allerton pottery. Looking back into history, the village dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Alretune, but by 1430, the village was listed as "Allerton by ye water." The "water" reference is the River Aire. Allerton literally means "farmstead or village where alder-trees grow" from the Old English words alor + tun. [1]

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bipewatere family emigrate to North America: G. Bywater who arrived in New Jersey in 1675.
