The present generation of the Baughtree family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in or around the village of Bawtry, a small market town near Doncaster in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The surname may also be derived from residency near an elderberry tree, which was known as the Bor-tree or Baw-tree.

Baughtree Early Origins



The surname Baughtree was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Baughtree Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Baughtree include Bawtree, Bawtry, Bautre, Bawtre, Bawthrie, Bautry, Bawtrey, Baughtree and many more.

The Great Migration



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 Baughtree were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World before the 19th century.
