The name Baeche comes from the German region of Westphalia. The tradition of adopting hereditary surnames came to Germany after the 12th century, and the names of places where people lived were a primary source. Many local names carry the prefix "von", meaning "of" or "from". It originally indicated land ownership, and is sometimes a mark of nobility. The Baeche family originally lived by a stream or a brook. The name Baeche was originally derived from the German word bach which means stream.

The Great Migration



For many Germans, emigration to North America was an inviting alternative to the trials of life in the old country. From the mid-17th into the present century, thousands of Germans migrated across the Atlanti c. They capitalized on the chance to escape poverty and persecution, and to own their own land. After 1650, Germans settled throughout the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also landed in Canada, settling in Ontario or father west on the rich land of the prairies. Among them: Abraham Beck, who came to Philadelphia in 1751; Christian Beck, age 40; arrived in Texas in 1846; Jacob Beck settled in Philadelphia in 1738; Johann Beck, age 27.
