The origins of the Anglo-Saxon name Bozarth come from its first bearer, who was a person named after the bird of the same name. The buzzard was a fairly common bird in medieval England.

Bozarth Early Origins



The surname Bozarth was first found in Bedfordshire at Leighton-Buzzard, a markettown and parish, and the head of a union, in the hundred of Manshead. "The adjunct to the name is either derived from Bosard, the name of a family in the county, who were knights of the shire in the reign of Edward III., or from Beau desert; the prevailing opinion being in favour of the latter."

Bozarth Spelling Variations



The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Bozarth has been spelled many different ways, including Buzzard, Boszart, Bozard, Busard, Buzard, Bussard and many more.

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 Bozarths to arrive in North America: William Buzzard who arrived in Philadelphia in 1857.
