The history of the name Bilere dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from a member of the family who worked as a bell-founder or a bellringer. The surname Bilere is derived from the Old English word belle, which means bell.

Early Origins of the Bilere family


The surname Bilere was first found in Cambridgeshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times. The parish of Kirby Bellars in Leicestershire takes its name from the foundation of a college there in 1359 during the reign of Edward II. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Bilere family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bilere were among those contributors: Martin Biller, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1732.
