Bushburay is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having 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 Bushburay 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.

Bushburay Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Bushburay family name include Bushby, Bushbury, Bushbure, Bushbie and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Bushburay surname or a spelling variation of the name include: 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
