Where did the English Bozarth family come from? When did the Bozarth family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bozarth family history?

The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture once found in Britain is the soil from which the many generations of the Bozarth family have grown. The name Bozarth was given to a member of the family who was a person named after the bird of the same name. The buzzard was a fairly common bird in medieval England.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Bozarth family name include Buzzard, Boszart, Bozard, Busard, Buzard, Bussard and many more.

First found in Herefordshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Bozarth surname or a spelling variation of the name include : William Buzzard who arrived in Philadelphia in 1857.
