The many generations and branches of the Bedere family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a coppersmith or a dealer in baterie. The surname Bedere 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.

Bedere Early Origins

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bedere family emigrate to North America: Charles Bater who arrived in Virgina in 1642. Thomas Bater sailed to America in 1772.
