Buescher History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The ancient German region of the Rhineland was the original home of the name Buescher. Buescher was a local name, a type of hereditary surname that identified people by the places where they lived. Landowners were the first to use local names, often attaching the prefix "von", meaning "of" or "from", in some cases as a mark of aristocratic birth.

The distinguished name Buescher is derived from the Old German word busc, which means thicket or brush.
Early Origins of the Buescher family
The surname Buescher was first found in the Rhineland, where the family became noted for its many branches within the region, many houses acquiring a status and influence which rivaled that of the landed aristocracy. In their later history some branches were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they distinguished themselves through their contributions to the social, political, and economic developments of the nation. The earliest individual bearer of this name to be mentioned in ancient chronicles was Cuentzlin in Busch of Wuerttenberg (1381).

Migration of the Buescher family
Hundreds of thousands of Europeans, including many Rhinelanders, made the voyage to North America between the 17th and 20th centuries. It was an escape from religious persecution and poverty and also an opportunity for people to start over and own their own land. Most landed at Ellis Island, off New York before moving on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, and California. Some also landed in Canada and settled in Ontario, while others headed west to the prairie provinces. A study of passenger and immigration lists has shown a number of people bearing the name of Buescher, or one of its variants, reaching North America shores very early: Casper and Daniel Busch, both of whom arrived in America in 1709. Christian Bush also arrived in the New World in 1709. Erasmus Busch came to Philadelphia in 1771.
