The history of the Babberstyck family name begins after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Wiltshire where they held a family seat from the 11th century. The family takes its name from a place called Baverstock in this area.

Babberstyck Early Origins



The surname Babberstyck was first found in Wiltshire at Baverstock, a small village and former civil parish. Conjecturally they were Lords of the manor of Baverstock, originally Babestoche, which was held at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book Survey in 1086, by the Abbess of Wilton.

Babberstyck Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Baverstocke, Baverstock, Baverstoke, Bayverstock, Beaverstock, Beaverstocke and many more.

Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Babberstyck or a variant listed above were: the family of Baverstock who landed in New England in 1720.
