Meaning of the name Beucke

  • 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
