culture. It comes from 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 Bushbure 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.

Migration of the Bushbure family to the New World and Oceana
To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England
went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bushbure family emigrate to 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.
The Bushbure 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
