Beavinton Spelling Variations

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Beavinton family name include Bebbington, Bebington, Bebbinton, Bebinton and many more.

Migration of the Beavinton family

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Beavinton surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Anne Bevington who settled in Virginia in 1660; Francis Bevington landed in America in 1772; Thomas Bevinton settled in Virginia in 1650.
