Bethune History

The name originates in France in the 12th century from the town of the same name.

Robert de Betunia appears as a witness in a charter of De Quinci between 1165 and 1190. Around this time the name was often spelled Betun or Beton and in the 16th century it was often confused with the name Beaton.
