The English surname Beaumont is a Norman habitational name from any of the five places in Normandy or several others elsewhere in France so named. The place name comes from Old French beu, bel ‘fair’, ‘lovely’ + mont ‘hill’. The surname is now widespread throughout England, but most common in Yorkshire. Robert de Beaumont (died 1118) was one of those who fought alongside William the Conqueror in the Norman invasion of England in 1066, and William rewarded him with large grants of land in Warwickshire. He took his name from an estate owned by his grandfather at Beaumont-le-Roger in Normandy.
