Where did the English Bosman family come from? What is the English Bosman family crest and coat of arms? When did the Bosman family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bosman family history?The ancient roots of the Bosman family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Bosman comes from when the family lived in or around either of the settlements called Barsham in Norfolk and Suffolk.
One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Bosman has appeared include Basham, Bosham, Barsham, Bassham, Bashan, Bashum and many more.

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Bosman arrived in North America very early:
Bosman Settlers in the United States in the 17th Century
Bosman Settlers in the United States in the 18th Century
Bosman Settlers in the United States in the 19th Century
