The Badham One Name Society is open to anyone interested in finding out more about Badham family history, including its surname variants. It was formed in 1999 and has approaching 50 members in the UK and overseas.

The Badham One Name Society (B1NS*) is an educative and research-based association devoted to the sharing of information and resources related to Badham history, and aims to:-

·         promote the study of Badham heritage and genealogy

·         emphasise family history in the context of historical events and locations

·         encourage and publicise research into Badham history

·         produce regular articles and information for B1NS members

·         promote the conservation of documents, literature, photographs, artefacts and historical sites linked to the Badham surname

B1NS is a member of the Federation of Family History Societies. We are also formally recognised by HM Revenue and Customs as having charitable aims, which enables us to run a "Gift Aid" scheme.

* The use of B1NS (pronounced 'bins') arose informally within the Society and is now generally used as the shortened form of Badham One Name Society.
