Where did the English Bipewatere family come from? What is the English Bipewatere family crest and coat of arms? When did the Bipewatere family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bipewatere family history?The origins of the Bipewatere name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived on the waterfront. The name means "dweller by the water," and refers to residence near a river, lake, or coast.
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.

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.
