Beeton Coat of Arms / Beeton Family Crest

The surname of BEETON was a baptismal name 'the son of Beatrice'. It is a name familiar to Cornwall, an ancient and still popular font name. During the middle ages a need was felt for an additional name to the one that had been given at birth. This was recognized by the nobles, as it added prestige and practical advantage to their status. Early records of the name mention BETON (without surname) who was documented in County Lancashire in 1198. Richard Beatone was recorded in County Lancashire in the year 1440, and Agnes Beatone appears in London in 1450. Edward Beeton, who was recorded in County Somerset, during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). Johannes Beton, of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Beton de Wath, ibid. Baptised. Robert, son of William Beton, St. Mary, Aldermary, London in the year 1694. The most famous of this name was Mrs Isabella Mary Beeton (1836-1865) the English writer on cookery. She was educated in Heidelberg and became an accomplished pianist. In 1856 she married Samuel Orchard Beeton, a publisher, and her Book of Household Management, first published in parts in (1859-60) in a women's magazine founded by her husband covering cookery and other branches of domestic science, made her name a household word. When the coast of England was invaded by William The Conqueror in the year 1066, the Normans brought with them a store of French personal names, which soon, more or less, entirely replaced the traditional more varied Old English personal names, at least among the upper and middle classes. A century of so later, given names of the principal saints of the Christian church began to be used. It is from these two types of given name that the majority of the English patronymic surnames are derived and used to this day.
