BUSTIN Family History

This interesting surname has two distinct possible sources, each with its own history and derivation. Firstly, Bustin may be of Anglo-Saxon origin, and a variant of the more familiar Buston, itself a locational name from High or Low Buston, two parishes, south east of Alnwick, in Northumberland. Recorded variously as "Buttesdune" and "Uuerbuttesdun" in the 1166 Pipe Rolls of that county, and as "Superior" and "Inferior Butlisdon" in the 1242 Book of Fees, the places were so called from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal byname "Buttel", from "butt", short, thickset, and "dun", hill, mountain.
