Badlesmore Early Origins



The surname Badlesmore 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]

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada.
