Early Origins of the Buzzart family
The surname Buzzart was first found in Bedfordshire
at Leighton-Buzzard, a markettown and parish, and the head of a union, in the hundred
of Manshead. "The adjunct to the name is either derived from Bosard, the name of a family in the county, who were knights of the shire in the reign of Edward III., or from Beau desert; the prevailing opinion being in favour of the latter." CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Buzzart family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Buzzart were among those contributors: William Buzzard who arrived in Philadelphia in 1857.
