The ancestry of the name Buckstome dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived 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.

Buckstome Early Origins



The surname Buckstome 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]

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Buckstome, 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.
