Name Meaning

Probably an altered form of French Bourdillon: topographic name from a diminutive of Bourde ‘hut, smallholding, small farm’ (see Borde ), or a habitational name from (Le) Bourdillon, the name of several places in various parts of France, of the same etymology.

In some cases also Filipino: unexplained.

History: The name was brought to Warwick, RI, some time in or before 1668, probably via England, by Francis Budlong (died 1675).
