The Anglo-Saxon name Bushburey comes from when the family resided in either of the places called Bushby in Leicester and/or at Busby in the North Riding of Yorkshire. The Yorkshire branch of the Bushburey 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.

Bushburey Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Bushburey has been recorded under many different variations, including Bushby, Bushbury, Bushbure, Bushbie and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Bushburey or a variant listed above: 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
