Buddane History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Anglo-Saxon name Buddane comes from when its first bearer worked as a maker of buttons. The surname Buddane is a metonymic name derived from the Old French word boton, which means button.


Early Origins of the Buddane family


The surname Buddane was first found in Hampshire and later in Gloucestershire and Somerset. Lower says the family can be traced to the 13th century in Hampshire where Sir Walter de Button was progenitor of the family about 1216 A.D. The family had flourished for several centuries in that county, intermarrying with many distinguished families, supplementing their estates with marriages of the heiresses of the Furneaux, Bryan, Turbevilles, Bassets and others.

William of Bitton I (d. 1264,) also listed as William Button was a medieval Bishop of Bath and Wells.

Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Buddane include Button, Bitton, Buttoner, Buton, Biton, Buttons, Boutin, Bouttin, Bouton, Boutton, Budden, Buddan, Boudin, Bouddin, Buttan, Buddon, Buddin, Butten, Buttin, Butting, Budding, Buttane and many more.

Migration of the Buddane family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Buddane or a variant listed above: Mary Button who settled in Jamaica in 1685; Thomas Button settled in Virginia in 1623; William Button settled in Plymouth Massachusetts in 1620; John Button settled in Baltimore Maryland in 1775.
