The origins of the Bucknyle name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in Bucknall, a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire which had a population of 309 in 2001. The village claims that Lady Godiva was born here based on her brother Thorold, Sheriff of Lincolnshire, being known as "Thorold of Bucknall". Bucknall is also a suburb of Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire and there is another Bucknal listed in Shropshire. Bucknell can be found in Shropshire, close to the borders with Wales and Herefordshire and also about 2.5 miles (4.0 km) northwest of Bicester in Oxfordshire, England.

Bucknyle Early Origins



The surname Bucknyle was first found in Lincolnshire where the place dates back to before the Domesday Book, when it was listed as Bokenhale in 806, derived from the Old English personal name "Bucca" + "halh", collectively meaning "nook of land of a man called Bucca, or where he-goats graze." By the time of the Domesday Book, the name was listed as Buchehale in Lincolnshire and in Staffordshire as Bucenhole. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bucknyle family emigrate to North America: Magdalen Bucknell who settled in Annapolis Maryland in 1731; James Bucknall settled in Philadelphia in 1813; James Bucknale settled in Philadelphia in 1813.
