Let me give acknowledgment to Greg Lehey ahead of time for this as this 
bit that follows comes from _The Complete FreeBSD_.

".. by the mid-80s, there were four different versions of UNIX: the 
Research Version ... the Berkeley Software Distribution ... System V 
... and XENIX, "

Sorry for omitting parts, but the overall idea of the passage remains 

I believe, and someone correct me here, that BSD was a modification of 
the /original/ UNIX code which existed prior to Sys V in 1983, 
indicating that BSD and Sys V are different branches from the same 
trunk.  The history is rather confusing though, so I expect to be wrong 
on this.
