Origins Available: English, French


It was among those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain that the name Beranger was formed. The name was derived from the German name Beringer. The surname probably arrived in England shortly after the Norman Conquest of 1066, since the Normans imported many laborers from the continent in order to expedite their hold on England.

Beranger Early Origins



The surname Beranger was first found in Norfolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Beranger Spelling Variations



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 Beranger include Berringer, Berenger, Baringer, Beringar, Berengerus, Berengarus, Berengarii, Beringer, Belinger, Bellinger, Bellenger, Beranger and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Beranger were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
