Origins Available: English, German


The name Bushor is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was a name given to a person who made their living by selling wood. The surname Bushor is derived from the Old French word buschier, which means woodmonger. The surname may have also been an occupational name for a butcher; in this case, the derivation is from the Anglo-French words bocher and boucher, which are both derived from the Old French words bochier and bouchier. Bushor may have also been a nickname derived from the Old French phrase beau-sire, which means fair sir, and is an address of respect or courtesy.

Bushor Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Bushor include Busher, Boschier, Boscher, Buscher, Bussher and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Bushor were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Mable Busher who arrived in Virginia in 1635 and Mary Busher in Barbados in 1680.
