The name Bidere finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a coppersmith or a dealer in baterie. The surname Bidere is possibly derived from the Old French word bateor, meaning one who beats, a term which has been applied to a beater of cloth or fuller. The surname may also be a short form of the word orbatour, which means a beater of gold.

Bidere Early Origins



The surname Bidere was first found in Berkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Bidere or a variant listed above: Charles Bater who arrived in Virgina in 1642. Thomas Bater sailed to America in 1772.
