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


The name Byllanger was brought to England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Byllanger family lived in Nottingham in the midlands of England. However, the family was originally descended from the Bellengers, the Knights of Facomberg in Picardy, France and the name has been corrupted from the name of the French Boulanger family, who were chevaliers (knights) of Hainaut and Flanders.

Byllanger Early Origins



The surname Byllanger was first found in Nottingham in the midlands of England where they held a family seat from very early times, and granted large estates in that shire, by William the Conqueror, their liege lord.

Byllanger Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Ballenger, Ballinger, Bellinger, Bellenger and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlanti c. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Byllanger or a variant listed above: Frederick Bellinger who settled in New York State in 1710; Henry Bellinger settled in New York in 1709; Marcus Bellinger arrived in New York in 1710; Ann Bellinger settled in Barbados in 1654.
