    Origin Displayed: English - Spelling variations of this family name include: Beach, Beche, Beck, Becke, Beache, Bech, Beech and many more. First found in Hertfordshire where Gosfrid le Beche was sometimes known as Geoffrey de Bec, one of the principal holders and tenant-in-chief of land in that shire as recorded by the Domesday Book in the year 1086 C.E. Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Henry Beck of St. Lawrence, Newfoundland, who captured a French banker, in 1814; Thomas Beck was residing in St. John's Newfoundland in 1821. There is a Beck Bay in Newfoundland. Early settlers in the United States were: Richard Beach who settled in Boston Mass. in 1637. (From www.HouseOfNames.com Archives copyright © 2000 - 2009). This interesting surname is much less clear cut in its origins than it may seem at first. It is true that it can be topographical, and derive from the Old English pre-7th century 'bec', therefore describing one who was resident by beech Trees or a beech orchard, as beech nuts were collected as part of the medieval winter diet. However the most likely explanation is that the surname has a quite different meaning altogether. It probably derives from "Baec" as in the modern 'beck' and meaning a small river or stream, since it was necessary to live as close to fresh water as possible. Finally it is also possible that some modern name holders derive from 'Beche', another Old English word meaning "The Valley". What is certain is that there have been many early and important name holders. Examples include Euphemia de la Beche, in Norfolk in 1363, and Adam Beche, the Abbot of Colchester, who was executed in 1539 for opposing Henry 7th's dissolution of the monasteries. Later examples are those of Thomas Beach who married Grace Sarken at St Michaels church, Cornhill, London, on 1 July 1575, and Rebecca Beech, christened at St James Church, Clerkenwell, on 31 March 1623. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of John de la Beche, which was dated 1236, in the Worcester County Pipe Rolls, during the reign of King Henry 3rd, known as "The Frenchman", 1216 - 1272. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling. © Copyright: Name Origin Research www.surnamedb.com 1980 - 2014.
