The ancient name of Bouder finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a sifter of meal. Other evidence suggests that the surname Bouder was established as an area called Boulder. From there people acquired the surname. The name is also derived from the Old English word bulder which means boulder or cobblestone. Alternatively the name could have been derived from the word bolter which was a miller. Boulter's Lock and Boutler's Island are both located on the River Thames on the eastern side of Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Bouder Early Origins



The surname Bouder was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Bouder Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Bouder family name include Boulter, Bolter, Boulder, Bolteir and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Bouder surname or a spelling variation of the name include :
