An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright İ 2000 - 2016


The name Byggerstolm first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in one of several places named Bickerton. Bickerton is the name of various townships in the parish of Malpas in Cheshire in the parish of Rothburg in Northumberland, and in the parish of Bilton, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The toponym Bickerton is derived from the Old English beocere, which means bee-keeper, and tun, which originally denoted a fence or enclosure. However this came to mean enclosure round a house, homestead, village or town at an early date. Thus the name can be understood to mean village of the bee-keeper.

Byggerstolm Early Origins



The surname Byggerstolm was first found in Cheshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Byggerstolm arrived in North America very early: Joan Bickerton who settled in Barbados in 1675; George Bickerton settled in Pennsylvania in 1772; John in Philadelphia in 1773; Thomas settled in New England in 1753..
