Hello Garry,

"beucke" was meaning in German (and I guess in Dutch as well) "beech tree". Your forfather was the guy who had his dwelling close to a significant beech tree.

Kind regards

Hi Garry,

my great-grandmother's name was Beuke. She and her ancestors came from Sümmern (Iserlohn or Menden) in Germany near Dortmund in the Sauerland.
Do you know any connections in this direction?

Nice greetings
Heiko
