English: habitational name from Bushey in Hertfordshire, so named with an Old English bysce or byxe ‘box’ + hæg ‘enclosure’.
English: alternatively, a nickname from Middle English busshi ‘bushy, shrub-like, overgrown’, probably in the sense ‘having long, thick hair’ (well recorded in 17th-century usage). These English surnames are now rare in Britain.
