An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Beverstox reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Beverstox family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Beverstox family lived in Wiltshire where they held a family seat from the 11th century. The family takes its name from a place called Baverstock in this area.

Beverstox Early Origins



The surname Beverstox was first found in Wiltshire at Baverstock, a small village and former civil parish. Conjecturally they were Lords of the manor of Baverstock, originally Babestoche, which was held at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book Survey in 1086, by the Abbess of Wilton.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Beverstoxs to arrive on North American shores: the family of Baverstock who landed in New England in 1720.
