Bastwock is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in Cheshire, where they derived their name from the township of Bostock, in the parish of Davenham.

Early Origins of the Bastwock family


The surname Bastwock 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."

Migration of the Bastwock family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Bastwock or a variant listed above: 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.
