Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places in Lancashire and East Yorkshire named Beswick. The second element is clearly Old English wīc ‘outlying (dairy) farm’ ( see Wick ). The first element of the Lancashire name may be an Old English personal name Bēac; that of the Yorkshire name is possibly an Old Norse personal name Bōsi or Besi.
