The Bosecken surname first began to be used in the German state of Bavaria, some time after the 12th century, when hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules, and names that were derived from locations became particularly common. The family name Bosecken is a local surname. Originally denoting the proprietorship of an estate or influence within a village, the German preposition von, which means from or of, used with local names, was taken as a mark of aristocracy. The surname Bosecken was given to someone who lived in Nuremberg, in the Bavarian part of Western Germany. The prestigious Bosecken family played an integral part in the social, economic and political development in the Nuremberg region. In medieval times, when land proprietorship and management were the sole source of wealth and power, the Bosecken family became members of the gentry. They possessed vast estates and enjoyed the splendors of the feudal court.

The Great Migration



The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from Bavaria who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. For many Bavarian tenant farmers, the chance to own their own land was a major incentive. So the widespread colonization of the United States began in 1650, when many immigrants from Germany settled in pockets in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. In Canada, German settlement centered in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were: Edward Bosaker who arrived in Virginia in 1636; Jacob Bossaker who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1732; Herman M. Bosseck settled in Philadelphia in 1804.
