The name Bulstrood belongs to the early history of Britain, it's origins lie with the Anglo-Saxons. It is a product of their having lived in Bulstrode, an estate in Buckinghamshire that has long been associated with the family.

Bulstrood Early Origins



The surname Bulstrood 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!"

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Bulstrood were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
