The ancient name of Beddemint finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a person hired to pray for another's soul after his death. The surname Beddemint is derived from the Old English terms bede, which means prayer, and man, which means man. In medieval England, there were also beadhouses, or almshouses for the poor, where the inhabitants were required to pray for their benefactors. In a publication by Skelton in 1528, he wrote of Other smale mynisters, as reders and singers, bedemen and bellringers.

Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Beddemint family name include Beadman, Bedman, Bedeman, Bedemon, Beadmann and many more.
