Bennett Genealogy & History

Bennett, an English/Scottish and Dutch surname, is derived from the Latin given name "Benedictus", meaning "blessed". It was popular in the Middle Ages, due to St. Benedict (c. 480-547), patron saint of Europe and founder of the Benedictine order of monks. Alternate spellings include Old French forms of Benoit and Beneit. Bennett family history is said to date back to the ancient Scottish Borders region, where the Celtic Strathclyde Britons were one of the founding peoples of Northern England over 1100 years ago. The Bennett family held a family seat (feudal manor) in Lancashire in ancient times. American Bennett genealogy dates to the 1620s in Virginia.
