Early Origins of the Bumsted family


The surname Bumsted was first found in Essex, at either Bumpstead-Helion, Bumpstead-at-the-Tower, or Steeple Bumpstead. 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]

Migration of the Bumsted family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bumsteds to arrive in North America: Stephen Bumpstead who settled in Barbados in 1684; Edward and Thomas Bumstead settled New England in 1630; William Bumstedd settled in Barbados in 1634.
