Beagle History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The history of the name Beagle begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from the name of a medieval court official called a beadle. A beadle performed similar duties to those of a bailiff in a modern court of law, as well as acting as a sort of town crier, and later as a constable of the parish.

Migration of the Beagle family to the New World and Oceana

On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Beagle or a variant listed above:
