Name Meaning

Scottish (of Norman origin): habitational name from Beuzeville in Seine Maritime, France, named with Old French Beuze (a personal name probably of Germanic origin) + ville ‘settlement’. The final element has been altered as a result of association with the common place name ending -well ‘spring’, ‘stream’.
