Bedmint History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Bedmint family name dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. The name comes from when an early member worked as a person hired to pray for another's soul after his death. The surname Bedmint 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.

Migration of the Bedmint family to the New World and Oceana

In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Bedmints to arrive on North American shores: Elizabeth Beadman who arrived in Virginia in 1650.
