The founding heritage of the Beddere family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Beddere comes from when one of the family worked as a coppersmith or a dealer in baterie. The surname Beddere is possibly derived from the Old French word bateor, meaning one who beats, a term which has been applied to a beater of cloth or fuller. The surname may also be a short form of the word orbatour, which means a beater of gold.

Beddere Early Origins

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bedderes to arrive in North America: Charles Bater who arrived in Virgina in 1642. Thomas Bater sailed to America in 1772.
