The origins of the Anglo-Saxon name Boxx come from its first bearer, who was a person with a jaundiced complexion. The Old English word box referred to a box-tree or box-wood, and in Old English use indicated a yellowish color. The surname Boxx may also refer to residence near a box-tree. The name may also indicate residence near the settlements of Box in Gloucestershire and Wiltshire, or Box Hall in Hertfordshire.

The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Boxx has been spelled many different ways, including Boxe, Box and others.

First found in Wiltshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times. They held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Box, where there is an ancient Gothic church containing twelve bells, as well as a medicinal spring, the village also begins a railway tunnel one and three quarter miles long where the line proceeds to Bath. The name appears in the thirteenth century in the Rotunda Oblitus et Finibus.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Boxxs to arrive in North America: Benjamin and John Box who settled in Virginia in 1623; followed by Anthony, Benjamin, John, Mary, and Thomas Box who settled there in 1637; Anne Box settled there later in 1679.
