Misc. Notes
The Beans of Bucks Co, PA descend from William Bean of Wyersdale, Lancashire, England. It appears evident that his family emigrated to England from Inverness Shire Scotland during the time of the great political upheaval of the Great Civil War Era. They settled in Lancashire and lived here until the great Quaker Revivals under William Penn. William was one of the many converts to the Quaker faith. It is believed that William Bean never did come to North America and close relatives of this line of the Clan MacBean still live in Lancashire.
Some use the spelling of the name, Bayne or Bayn or Baine or Bane. In North America various spellings of the name are used also.
