The name Bastik belongs to the early history of Britain, it's origins lie with the Anglo-Saxons. It is a product of their having lived in Cheshire, where they derived their name from the township of Bostock, in the parish of Davenham.

The surname Bastik was first found in Cheshire at Bostock, a township, in the parish of Davenham, union and hundred of Northwich. "This place gave name to a family descended from Osmerus, lord of Bostock in the reign of William the Conqueror: the heiress of the elder branch brought the manor in the latter part of the 15th century to the Savages."

The recorded variations of Bastik include Bostock, Bowstock, Boast, Bostake, Bostick and many more.

Migration of the Bastik family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Bastik were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Francis Boast and his wife and five children settled in Nova Scotia in 1774; Henry Bostock settled in Maryland in 1779; Henry Bostock settled in Barbados in 1635.
