Badlemore Early Origins



The surname Badlemore was first found in Kent where they claim descent from the tenant of the lands of Badlesmere, held by a steward of the Bishop of Bayeux, half brother of Duke William of Normandy who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. The market-town and parish Shiffnall in Shropshire was of historical significance to the family. "The estate afterwards came into the possession of the Badlesmeres, who obtained from Edward I. a market for two days in the week, and two yearly fairs. Bartholomew de Badlesmere having been executed for his participation in the battle of Boroughbridge, it subsequently became the property of various families of distinction." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Badlemore 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 Badlesmere, Badlesmore, Badlemere, Badlemore and others.
