The name Buckworde has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name 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



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 Buckworde, or a variant listed above: John Buckworth who settled in Virginia in 1638; Richard Buckworth settled in Barbados with his wife and servants in 1680.
