Bogust History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancestors of the Bogust family took their surname from a place name. The roots of this place name lie with the ancient Viking settlers. The Bogust surname comes from someone having lived in a place noted for the presence of a ridge that formed a boundary between two distinct areas. It comes from a variant of the word boak or balk, of the same meaning. While historians generally agree upon the aforementioned topographical derivation, most believe that this name actually came from the area called Boak in the parish of Kirkholm.

Early Origins of the Bogust family


The surname Bogust was first found in Berwickshire an ancient county of Scotland, presently part of the Scottish Borders Council Area, located in the eastern part of the Borders Region of Scotland, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.
