The Buist surname occurs in Normandy in the 12th century.

Buist Early Origins



The surname B Uist was first found in Fife, where they were granted lands under the name Bois Arnold. In 1130 Ernald de Bosco was holding Arnald in the county of Leicestershire, and Little Halton and Braefield in Northampton and other lands in the honor of Huntingdon. They moved north with David, Earl of Huntingdon, and were granted lands, and Peter Buist was shown as Chief of that clan.
