During that dark period of history known as the Middle Ages, the name of Bazemore was first used in Austria. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in Germany, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Bazemore family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Bazemore was an occupational name for a fine collector. Tracing the origin of the name further, we found the name Bazemore was derived from the German word buoze, which means fine.
