Bellingor History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Bellingor reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Bellingor family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Bellingor family lived in Nottingham in the midlands of England. However, the family was originally descended from the Bellengers, the Knights of Facomberg in Picardy, France and the name has been corrupted from the name of the French Boulanger family, who were chevaliers (knights) of Hainaut and Flanders.

Early Origins of the Bellingor family


The surname Bellingor was first found in Nottingham in the midlands of England where they held a family seat from very early times, and granted large estates in that shire, by William the Conqueror, their liege lord.

Bellingor Spelling Variations


Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Bellingor family name include Ballenger, Ballinger, Bellinger, Bellenger and others.

Migration of the Bellingor family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Bellingor family to immigrate North America: Frederick Bellinger who settled in New York State in 1710; Henry Bellinger settled in New York in 1709; Marcus Bellinger arrived in New York in 1710; Ann Bellinger settled in Barbados in 1654.
