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]

A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Badlesmere, Badlesmore, Badlemere, Badlemore and others.

Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Badlesmore or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
