The Rhineland, in Germany, is the ancient home of the Baeverer family. Traditionally, the German people only used one name, but as the population increased they were forced to adopt hereditary surnames. A common type of name in Germany was derived from the name of a parent of the bearer. To this class belong patronymic names, derived from the father, and metronymic names, derived from the mother. Baeverer comes from a beautiful person which is derived from the Old French words beu and bel, which mean fair or lovely, and veir or voir, which mean to see. In the 8th and 9th centuries, the French language was commonly spoken in the German states. For example, the court of Charlemagne (742-814) was Christian and Latin-speaking, but the Frankish dialect of Old German and Old French were commonly used for personal names.

Baeverer Early Origins



The surname Baeverer was first found in the Rhineland, where the name Beveren made a significant early contribution to European feudal society. The name Beveren became figured prominently in local affairs. It branched into many houses, where family members continued to play important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, which saw each group vying for increased power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.

The Great Migration



Hundreds of thousands of Europeans, including many Rhinelanders, made the voyage to North America between the 17th and 20th centuries. It was an escape from religious persecution and poverty and also an opportunity for people to start over and own their own land. Most landed at Ellis Island, off New York before moving on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, and California. Some also landed in Canada and settled in Ontario, while others headed west to the prairie provinces. A study of passenger and immigration lists has shown a number of people bearing the name of Baeverer, or one of its variants, reaching North America shores very early: settlers who arrived and established themselves along the eastern seaboard of the United States and in Canada during the 18th and 19th centuries.
