The name Boushe is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived by a bush. The surname Boushe is derived from the Old English words busk and busche, which both are ultimately derived from the Old English word busc, which means bush. "This word, now applied to a low thick tree, formerly meant a whole wood or grove." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Boushes to arrive in North America: Jo Bush who settled in Virginia in 1635; John Bush settled in Barbados in 1660; Reynold Bush settled in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1640; Sarah Bush settled in North Carolina in 1701.
