Today's generation of the Bugden family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Bugden family lived in Huntingdon. The Bugden line was descended from the Norman French name Bogin, a local name in Calvados in Normandy.

Bugden Early Origins



The surname Bugden was first found in Huntingdon where they held a family seat from very early times, and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. William de Buggenden, was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Lincolnshire in 1195; and Claricia de Buggeden was listed in the Sussex Rolls in 1219.

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Bugdens to arrive on North American shores:

Bugden Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Tobias Bugden who settled in Maryland in 1734

Bugden Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century

  • Thomas Bugden, aged 15, a labourer, arrived in South Australia in 1858 aboard the ship "Sir Thomas Gresham"
