Spelling variations of this family name include: Bosanquet, Bosanket, Bosanqet, Bosquet and others.

First found in Essex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But many more family surnames would arrive from the continent after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in the reign of Louis XIV and this Huguenot family name was first referenced in the year 1685 when John and David Bosanquet came to England from their native Languedoc in the south of France and settled in Forest House in Essex.
