The ancestors of the name Buknale date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Buknale family 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.

Buknale Early Origins



The surname Buknale 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]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Buknale or a variant listed above: Magdalen Bucknell who settled in Annapolis Maryland in 1731; James Bucknall settled in Philadelphia in 1813; James Bucknale settled in Philadelphia in 1813.
