Looking for Beaumont ancestors. No idea where they started but they ended up in Essex.

The Surnames of Lancashire records that the families of Beaumont, Ewyas and Molyneaux were the only foreigh families in Lancashire during the mid-13thC.

The Beaumont family lived at Lancaster on the North side of the River Lune next to the ancient village of Halton.

According to the OS map for Lancashire there is still a Beaumont Hall and a Beaumont Old Farm in this locality.

Hope this is of some use.

Can anyone assert a connexion between these Lancashire Beaumonts and the "Beaumont" brand of taps; Were any Beaumonts ever involved in manufacturing in this area?

I'm intrigued because there is currently a style of tap called Beaumont, but not (so fars as I can tell) an actual company.

Ahh, didn't realise that would be a problem.

I saw this post today, and wanted to offer the following about the Beaumont line, even though it may have nothing to do with a "tap." If anyone is interested in seeing how the descendants look in this chart, go to a book by J. Gardner Bartlett, called the Newberry Genealogy. Bartlett has done a nice job with this, but he doesn't follow all the Beaumonts, just the earliest group. One of the sons who was born a "de Beaumont" changed his name to "de Newburgh" as he was born in the Newburgh Castle in Normandy. These people are probably Beaumont by blood, but this one son changed the name. They were Norman's and had substantial lands in Dorsetshire beginning around the 11th century via William the Conqueror. This was an armigerous group up until about 1500. Even at that time, the women from ancient knightly families such as Strode and Browne were intermarrying with Newburgh/Newberye men of gentry.
