The name Bushbie is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in either of the places called Bushby in Leicester and/or at Busby in the North Riding of Yorkshire. The Yorkshire branch of the Bushbie family stemmed from Great Busby, a township in the parish of Stokesley in the North Riding of the county. The Leicester branch of the family came from the hamlet of Busby, which was in the parish of Thurnby.

The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Bushbie has been spelled many different ways, including Bushby, Bushbury, Bushbure, Bushbie and others.

The Great Migration



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 Bushbies to arrive in North America: John Bushby who settled in Virginia in 1730; Mary Bushby settled in New England in 1746; William Bushby arrived in Philadelphia in 1846.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Fructu non foliis
Motto Translation: Fruit, not leaves
