Bawesar History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Bawesar family name dates back to 1066 when the Norman Conquest of England introduced a plethora of new names and words into Britain. It comes from an early member of the family who was a person who frequently used the informal Norman greeting beu sire, which means good sir, or fine sir.

Early Origins of the Bawesar family


The surname Bawesar was first found in Essex. They were originally from Bouchier in Normandy, and arrived in England with Duke William in 1066. John de Bourchier (d.circa 1330) was an English Judge of the Common Pleas and the earliest ancestor of the family. His son, Robert Bourchier was 1st Baron Bourchier (died 1349) and held the position of Lord Chancellor of England, the first layman to hold the post. His son, John Bourchier, 2nd Baron Bourchier (d. 1400), was a soldier and diplomat.
