The present generation of the Beuould family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in or near the village of Bowood, in the parish of Netherbury in Dorset.

Beuould Early Origins



The surname Beuould was first found in Dorset, where the name is associated with the village of Bowood in the parish of Netherbury. In the Domesday Book survey of 1086 Bowood was recorded as lands held by the Bishop of Salisbury. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Beuould 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 Beuould include Bowd, Bowood, Bowode, Bowed, Bowwd, Bowoode 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 Beuould were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: A. Bowde, who arrived in New Jersey in 1664.
