Bugnell is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in Bucknall, a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire which had a population of 309 in 2001. The village claims that Lady Godiva was born here based on her brother Thorold, Sheriff of Lincolnshire, being known as "Thorold of Bucknall". Bucknall is also a suburb of Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire and there is another Bucknal listed in Shropshire. Bucknell can be found in Shropshire, close to the borders with Wales and Herefordshire and also about 2.5 miles (4.0 km) northwest of Bicester in Oxfordshire, England.

Bugnell Early Origins



The surname Bugnell was first found in Lincolnshire where the place dates back to before the Domesday Book, when it was listed as Bokenhale in 806, derived from the Old English personal name "Bucca" + "halh", collectively meaning "nook of land of a man called Bucca, or where he-goats graze." By the time of the Domesday Book, the name was listed as Buchehale in Lincolnshire and in Staffordshire as Bucenhole. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Bugnell 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 Bugnell family name include Bucknall, Bucknell, Bucknel, Bucknal, Bucknill and many more.

The Great Migration



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. Early immigrants bearing the Bugnell surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Magdalen Bucknell who settled in Annapolis Maryland in 1731; James Bucknall settled in Philadelphia in 1813; James Bucknale settled in Philadelphia in 1813.
