Where did the English Budgell family come from? What is the English Budgell family crest and coat of arms? When did the Budgell family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Budgell family history?

Budgell is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in Berkshire from a place of that name.


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 Budgell family name include Burchall, Burchell, Burchill, Burchhell, Burtchell, Burtchill, Burtchaell and many more.

First found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, 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.
