BETTS Family History

This interesting name is of early medieval English origin, and derives from a medieval given name, "Bett", a short form of either "Bartholomew, Beatrice", or "Elizabeth". The plural form of the modern surname Betts, can therefore be a patronymic, from the father, or a metronymic, from the mother, meaning "son of Bett". "Bartholomew" derives from the Aramaic patronymic "bar-Talmy", which means "rich in land", the short form "Bet(t)" being recorded in London in 1312 with Robert Bet, son of Bartholomew Bette.
