Origins Available: English, German


The Anglo-Saxon name Buse comes from when its first bearer worked as a cooper, someone who made barrels or casks. The surname Buse was originally derived from the Old French word busse, which means cask. The surname may have also been a nickname for someone with a well-rounded belly or someone with the ability to drink the entire contents of a cask.

Buse Early Origins



The surname Buse was first found in Norfolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Buse Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Buse include Buss, Busse, Bus, Buse and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Buse or a variant listed above:
