Where did the English Buchert family come from? What is the English Buchert family crest and coat of arms? When did the Buchert family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Buchert family history?

The history of the Buchert name began with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the baptismal name Buchard, a variant of Burchard.


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 Buchert family name include Bockett, Bocket, Bocard, Bocardi, Bochard, Bockard, Bokett, Bucard, Buchard, Bucket and many more.

First found in Lincolnshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

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 Buchert surname or a spelling variation of the name include :
