Names from England Map 1086-1280

I have created a map of England which shows some of the earliest documented examples of Buggy and similar names. The line drawn across the country shows the extent of Viking settlements. These settlements were located in the counties north of the line and as far as the Scottish border.[1]

Chronologically they are:

1086       Buggi     Yorkshire and various in Nottinghamshire

1169       Bugg      Found in Lincoln, Lincolnshire. From The Great Roll of the Pipe for the Sixteenth Year of the Reign of King Henry the Second A.D. 1169-1170 (1885) by The Pipe Roll Society, page 152. Published in London by Wyman and Sons.

1230       Buggy    Godingvold
