The name Buckword is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family 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 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 Buckword family emigrate to North America: John Buckworth who settled in Virginia in 1638; Richard Buckworth settled in Barbados with his wife and servants in 1680.
