BEAUCHAMP Family History

This interesting name, with variant forms, Beauchamp, Beachamp, Beachem and De Beauchamp, is of French locational origin from any of the several places named with the Old French "beau, bel", meaning "fair" and "lovely", plus "champ(s)", field or plain, for example, Beauchamp in La Manche and Somme. The surname was introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, and the first recorded namebearer (see below), obtained forty-three lordships from William the Conqueror. In early records the name was frequently Latinized as "de Bello Campo".
