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.
The surname Buchert was first found in Lincolnshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.
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.
