The surname Bushe is derived from the Old English words busk and busche, which both are ultimately derived from the Old English word busc, which means bush. "This word, now applied to a low thick tree, formerly meant a whole wood or grove." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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 Bushe or a variant listed above:
