The origins of the Buckstone name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Buckstone was originally derived from a family having 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.

Buckstone Early Origins



The surname Buckstone 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



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:

  • George Buckstone, who landed in Maryland in 1674

Buckstone Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • H B Buckstone landed in Wellington, New Zealand in 1840
