The surname Busche is derived from the Old English words busk and busche, which both are ultimately derived from the Old English word busc, which means bush. "This word, now applied to a low thick tree, formerly meant a whole wood or grove." [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 for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Busche, or a variant listed above: Jo Bush who settled in Virginia in 1635; John Bush settled in Barbados in 1660; Reynold Bush settled in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1640; Sarah Bush settled in North Carolina in 1701.
