Origins Available: Dutch, English, German


The Anglo-Saxon name Beerman comes from when the family resided in Devon, where they took their name from one of the many places named Bear, Beare, Beara, et c., found in that county. The surname is likely to be derived from the Old English word bearu, which means grove. Several early instances of that name are in the form le beare, or the bear, from the Old English bera.

Beerman Early Origins



The surname Beerman was first found in Devon where there are two places on the banks of Tamar called Beer-Alston and Beer-Ferris. In Dorset, place names include Beer- Hacket and Beer-Regis. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Beerman or a variant listed above:

Beerman Settlers in United States in the 19th Century
