Buzzing


Buzzing
This interesting and unusual name is a variant of the French name 'Bos', which is derived from the Germanic personal name 'Boso', meaning audacious, from the Middle High German 'boese', and the Middle Low German 'bose', reckless, daring. The name was introduced into England in the mid to late 17th Century, when, thousands of French Huguenots fled there, and to other countries, to escape religious persecution on the Continent, especially after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes by King Louis X1V in 1685. The surname can be found as Buzzing, Bosson, Buzine, Boyson, Busain, Busin and Buzin, as in the first recording (see below). Among the sample recordings in London are the marriage of Thomas Buzin and Mary Smith on February 12th 1726 at St. Anne and St. Agnes, Aldersgate, and the christening of Eliza, daughter of Charles and Ann Buzzing, on April 16th 1855 at Feltham. Claude Busin and Francoise Potter were married on September 2nd 1669 at St. Doucelin, Allonnes, Maine-et-Loire, France. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Adrian Buzin (christening), which was dated April 8th 1641, French Huguenot, Threadneedle Street, London, during the reign of King Charles 1, known as 'The Martyr', 1625-1649. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
