BUSSEY Family History

This most interesting and unusual name is one of the many French names found in England. This particular name is of French locational origin from any of several places in Normandy: Bouche (Orne), Boucey (Manche), or Bucy-de-Lond (Aisne). All of these places derived their names from a Latin personal name "Buccius", a derivative of "bucca", mouth, plus the local suffix "-acum". The earliest recorded namebearer (see below) came from "Bouche", arriving with William the Conqueror during the Norman Invasion of 1066.
