The lineage of the name Buckwith begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived at Buckworth, in Huntingdonshire, a village near Alconbury west of Huntingdon. Alternatively, Buckworth was a hundred (a geographic division dating back to the Saxons) located in Surrey. This reference dates back to the Domesday Book as Cherchefelle, but in 1199 became known as Reigate.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Buckwith were among those contributors: John Buckworth who settled in Virginia in 1638; Richard Buckworth settled in Barbados with his wife and servants in 1680.
