The Anglo-Saxon name Beavington comes from when the family resided in the Wirral Peninsula where they were from Bebington, near Birkenhead. Bebbe comes from the Anglo-Saxon babbe, which means protector.

Beavington Early Origins



The surname Beavington was first found in Cheshire at Bebington, a parish, in the union, and Lower division of the hundred, of Wirrall. "The manor of Higher Bebington was held for several generations by the family of Bebington, the elder branch of which became extinct in the reign of Richard II.: a younger branch settled at Nantwich. Richard Bebington, of this family, had six sons and a brother slain at the battle of Flodden Field. The manor passed with the heiress of the elder branch to the Minshulls." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. 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 Beavington or a variant listed above: Anne Bevington who settled in Virginia in 1660; Francis Bevington landed in America in 1772; Thomas Bevinton settled in Virginia in 1650.
