The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence.

The Great Migration

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Blackbeardes to arrive in North America: a number of settlers who migrated to the New World and contributed to the development of North American society.
