The name Berdmore reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Berdmore family lived in Dorset. The original derivation of the name, however, is not related to that area, but is probably a geographical reference to some lost town, village, or parish. It is plausible that this place was in Staffordshire, as the name is extremely common in that area. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Berdmore 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 Berdmore family name include Beardmore, Beardsmore, Berdmore, Berdsmore, Birdmore, Beedsmore and many more.

Migration of the Berdmore 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 Berdmore family to immigrate North America: John Beardmore who arrived in Maryland in 1774.
