Bocutt is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin. It was a name given to a young, headstrong person. The surname Bocutt is derived from the Old French words broque and brocke, which became the Old English words broket and brocket c. 1410. All of these words refer to a stag in its second year with its first set of horns. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bocutt family emigrate to North America: John Brocket settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1635; William Brockett settled in Virginia in the same year; John Brocket settled in Delaware in 1785.
