Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Husbands Bosworth in Leicestershire (Baresworde in Domesday Book) from an Old English personal name, Bār (from bār ‘boar’) + worth ‘enclosure’, and possibly also from Market Bosworth in Leicestershire, so named with an Old English personal name Bōsa + Old English worth ‘enclosure’.
