Beverele is an ancient German name that originated in the Rhineland. While the Germans at first used only one name, population increases created confusion among people of the same name, forcing them to adopt hereditary surnames. Two common types of German names are patronymic names, taken from the given name of the father, and metronymic names, taken from the name of the mother. Beverele was derived from a beautiful person which is derived from the Old French words beu and bel, which mean fair or lovely, and veir or voir, which mean to see. In the 8th and 9th centuries, the French language was commonly spoken in the German states. For example, the court of Charlemagne (742-814) was Christian and Latin-speaking, but the Frankish dialect of Old German and Old French were commonly used for personal names.

Early Origins of the Beverele family


The surname Beverele was first found in the Rhineland, where the name Beveren made a significant early contribution to European feudal society. The name Beveren became figured prominently in local affairs. It branched into many houses, where family members continued to play important roles in the savage tribal and national conflicts, which saw each group vying for increased power and status in an ever changing territorial profile.

Migration of the Beverele family to the New World and Oceana


Between the 17th and 20th centuries, hundreds of thousands of Europeans came to North America, and many Rhinelanders were among them. They had many various reasons for making the choice: to escape poverty and persecution, for adventure, and for the opportunity to own their own land. Ellis Island, one of the main American immigration centers, saw many settlers as they moved on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, and New York. In Canada, they found homes in Ontario, and on the great plains of the Midwestern provinces. The Beverele were among of the early German families that came to North America: settlers who arrived and established themselves along the eastern seaboard of the United States and in Canada during the 18th and 19th centuries.
