The earliest record of the name was as Bumesteda which was listed in the Domesday Book. By the 13th century, the place was listed as Bumpsted Helyin in 1238 and later a Stepilbumstede in 1261. The name literally means "place where the reeds grow" derived from the Old English "bune" + "stede." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become powerful new nations. Among early immigrants of the Bumpsted surname to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: Stephen Bumpstead who settled in Barbados in 1684; Edward and Thomas Bumstead settled New England in 1630; William Bumstedd settled in Barbados in 1634.
