Bavene History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Bavene is a name that came to England in the 11th century wave of migration that was set off by the Norman Conquest of 1066.

Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Bavenes were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Mary Bavin who arrived in Virginia in 1650 and Thomas Bavin in 1750.
