Where did the English Bushie family come from? What is the English Bushie family crest and coat of arms? When did the Bushie family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bushie family history?The ancestors of the bearers of the Bushie family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found by a bush. The surname Bushie is derived from the Old English words busk and busche, which both are ultimately derived from the Old English word busc, which means bush.
Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Bushie include Bush, Bushe, Boush, Busche, Busch, Boushe and others.

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Bushie or a variant listed above: Jo Bush who settled in Virginia in 1635; John Bush settled in Barbados in 1660; Reynold Bush settled in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1640; Sarah Bush settled in North Carolina in 1701.
