Burkett Family HistoryThis unusual surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal name "Burgheard", composed of the elements "burh, burg", fort, similar to the Old High German "burg" (from the Old French element), the common Germanic word for a fortification, and the Olde English "heard", hardy, brave, strong. The name was reintroduced into Middle English by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066 in the forms "Bou(r)chart, Bocard"; this resulted in many variants of the surname, including Burkart, Borkett, Burchett, Burkett, Burchatt, Burchard, and Butchard.
