Origins of surname

This name comes from early English bydel, meaning 'beadle'. A beadle was a junior Court official in the Middle Ages, acting as an usher, delivering official notices, carrying the mace and making proclamations. Later on the beadle's chief function was to maintain law and order in his parish.

Early records

The name first appeared in Jersey church records with the baptism of William Thomas Biddle, son of James and Mary Wallace in St Helier in May 1845. Later that year the first of three children of George Biddle and Elizabeth Poulton was baptised in the same parish.
