The name Buckworth is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came 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.

Buckworth Early Origins



The surname Buckworth was first found in Huntingdonshire or perhaps Surrey, both dating back to circa Domesday Book.

Buckworth Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Buckworth family name include Buckworth, Buckworthe and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Buckworth surname or a spelling variation of the name include :
