The ancient roots of the Bebbington family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Bebbington comes from when the family lived in the Wirral Peninsula where they were from Bebington, near Birkenhead. Bebbe comes from the Anglo-Saxon babbe, which means protector.

Bebbington Early Origins



The surname Bebbington 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



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Bebbington arrived in North America very early:

  • Samuel Bebbington, who landed in Albany, NY in 1715

Bebbington Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • Mary Bebbington, aged 22, a servant, arrived in Wellington, New Zealand aboard the ship "Hermione" in 1878
