The Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain were the first to use the name of Bellere. The name had a practical origin since it came from when its initial bearer worked as a bell-founder or a bellringer. The surname Bellere is derived from the Old English word belle, which means bell.

Bellere Early Origins



The surname Bellere was first found in Cambridgeshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times. The parish of Kirby Bellars in Leicestershire takes its name from the foundation of a college there in 1359 during the reign of Edward II. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Bellere Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Bellere include Beller, Bellere, Bellier, Biller, Billere, Billier, Billers and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Bellere or a variant listed above: Martin Biller, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1732.
