The name Buckworthey is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the 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.

Buckworthey Early Origins



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

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Buckwortheys to arrive in North America: John Buckworth who settled in Virginia in 1638; Richard Buckworth settled in Barbados with his wife and servants in 1680.
