Re: I am a Beddingfield
The bedingfileds came from Suffolk England and the original Bedingfieled (Ogerus son of Unimar)came with William the conquer from Normandy to the battle of Hastings. Ogerus was of Viking blood. William Bedingfield came from Suffolk England in the mid 1600s and settled in Brunswick County Va. His grandson came to NC in the 1700s and left many decesendent there and the North Carolina line spells their name with two ds.Some of the rest of us became Benefields and other variations as we settled in Ga and other areas. Your dd name is an indication of North Carolina Bedingfields that came from the Raliegh area and did not migrate until later if at all.
