The ancestors of the Bevand family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Suffolk, where soon after the Norman Conquest, the village of Eston-Bavent was named after this illustrious family. Originally the name comes from the hamlet of Bavant (Bavent) in the Caen region of Normandy.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Bevand arrived in North America very early: Mary Bavin who arrived in Virginia in 1650 and Thomas Bavin in 1750.
