Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Bellars include Beller, Bellere, Bellier, Biller, Billere, Billier, Billers and many more.

First found in Cambridgeshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.
