It was among those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain that the name Businger was formed. The name was derived from the German name Beringer. The surname probably arrived in England shortly after the Norman Conquest of 1066, since the Normans imported many laborers from the continent in order to expedite their hold on England.

Early Origins of the Businger family

The recorded variations of Businger include Berringer, Berenger, Baringer, Beringar, Berengerus, Berengarus, Berengarii, Beringer, Belinger, Bellinger, Bellenger, Beranger and many more.

Migration of the Businger family to the New World and Oceana


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 Businger were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Peter Berringer who arrived in Philadelphia in 1751.
