BECKERS Family HistoryThis unusual and interesting name has its origins in both England and Germany and two possible meanings. The first of these is as a topographical name for someone who lived by a stream, and derives from the Middle High German 'bach' or from the Old English pre 7th century 'boece' or 'bece' meaning a stream or beck. The second source is from the Olde English 'boecere' Middle English 'bakere' and is an occupational name for a baker. It would have been used for the person with responsibility for baking bread in the kitchen of a great household, or for the owner of a communal oven used by the whole village.
