An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The history of the Buckstom family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in the region of Buxton parishes in the diocese of Southwell and Norwich. It may also be derived from the town in Derbyshire where in Old English it was known as Buchestanes, meaning bowing stones.

Buckstom Early Origins



The surname Buckstom was first found in Derbyshire. However, the parish of Rushford in Suffolk was of particular significance to the family. "Schadwell Park, the seat of the family of Buxton, is a handsome mansion in the Elizabethan style, recently new fronted with Caen stone, and considerably enlarged; the park is richly wooded, and in the grounds is St. Chad's Well, anciently much frequented by pilgrims on their route to the shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. The living is in the patronage of the Buxton family." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Buckstom Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Buckstom include Buckston, Buxton, Buckstone and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Buckstom or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Buxton who settled in Potomac Maryland in 1729; Grace Buxton settled in west New Jersey in 1773; John settled in Virginia in 1637; Robert in Virginia in 1646.
