The first people to use the distinguished Beye family name were found in Sussex. Their name however, was a reference to the Old French word baille, meaning the outer wall of a feudal castle, and indicates that the original bearer lived near such a structure.

Beye Early Origins



The surname Beye was first found in Colchester, where they had been granted lands about the year 1500. The name was originally spelt Baye, and Beyer. The parish of Bennington in Lincolnshire was another ancient family seat. "This place belonged to the family of Bay, of whom William Bay was summoned to the grand council at Westminster in 1353, as member for Boston: the ancient family mansion, Bay Hall, is still entire."

Beye Spelling Variations



Huguenot surnames were only slightly Anglicized, and they remain to this day a distinct group of surnames in England. Nevertheless, Huguenot surnames have been subject to numerous spelling alterations since the names emerged in France. French surnames have a variety of spelling variations because the French language has changed drastically over the centuries. French was developed from the vernacular Latin of the Roman Empire. It is divided into three historic and linguistic periods: Old French, which developed before the 14th century; Middle French, which was used between the 14th and 16th centuries; and Modern French, which was used after the 16th century and continues to be in use today. In all of these periods, the French language was heavily influenced by other languages. For example, Old French was infused with Germanic words and sounds when the barbarian tribes invaded and settled in France after the fall of the Roman Empire. Middle French also borrowed heaviliy from the Italian language during the Renaissance. Huguenot names have numerous variations. The name may be spelled Bay, Baye, Bayes, Bays and others.
