Origins of surname
This name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and derives from the Old English male personal name 'Beaduric', composed of the elements beadu, battle, with ric, power. The modern surname, which can be found in various forms in England , is rare. The original name is also found in two English placenames, Battersea in London, recorded as 'Badoricesheah' in 695, and meaning 'Beaduric's Island', and Bethersden in Kent, recorded as 'Baedericesdaenne' in the Domesday Book of 1086, and meaning 'Beaduric's (swine) pasture'.
The name does not appear in Jersey records until 1838, when John, the son of Robert and Elizabeth Gumbrell, was baptised in St Brelade. His brother Thomas was baptised there two years later.
Robert and Elizabeth came to Jersey from Bere Regis, Dorset, where Robert's ancestry can be traced back several generations to another Robert (1640- ) who arrived in Dorset from Ireland.
