Alternatively, Buckworth was a hundred (a geographic division dating back to the Saxons) located in Surrey. This reference dates back to the Domesday Book as Cherchefelle, but in 1199 became known as Reigate.

Migration of the Buxworthey family to the New World and Oceana


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 Buxworthey or a variant listed above: John Buckworth who settled in Virginia in 1638; Richard Buckworth settled in Barbados with his wife and servants in 1680.
