Bullstroode is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Bullstroode family once lived in Bulstrode, an estate in Buckinghamshire that has long been associated with the family.

Bullstroode Early Origins



The surname Bullstroode was first found in Buckinghamshire, where the estate dates back to at least the Norman Conquest. An early poem states "When William conquered English ground, Bulstrode had per annum three hundred pound." The Conqueror gave the estate to the Norman follower, "he and his adherents, mounted upon Bulls, resisted the invaders and retained possession. Afterwards, accompanied by his seven sons, mounted in the same fashion, he went under safe conduct to William's court, and the Conqueror was so much amused wit the strangeness of the scene, that he permitted the stalwart Saxon to hold his lands under ancient tenure, and conferred upon him and his heirs for ever the surname of Bullstrode!"

Bullstroode 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 Bullstroode family name include Bulstrode, Bulestrod, Bulestrode, Bulstrod, Bullstrod 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 Bullstroode surname or a spelling variation of the name include: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
