Of all the Anglo-Saxon
names to come from Britain, Bettonessolm is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the Pas-de-Calais region of Normandy
here the family lived before coming to England
with the Norman Conquest
and settling in the county of Essex
. Other records show the name could have been a baptismal name derived from the expression the son of Beatrice
from the nickname Bete.

Migration of the Bettonessolm family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bettonessolms to arrive in North America: J. Bettinson who arrived in Ontario in 1879.
