Today's generation of the Buzzy family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Buzzy family lived at the parish of Bussey in Hereford. The name, however, is a reference to the family's former place of residence, Bouce, in Orne, Normandy.

Buzzy Early Origins



The surname Buzzy was first found in Leicestershire at Wyfordby, a parish, in the union of Melton-Mowbray, hundred of Framland. "This place, at the Conquest, was granted to Roger de Bussy, Baron of Tickhill, in the county of York." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Buzzys to arrive on North American shores:
