A Little Hypothesis concerning our name

The Bashore name most likely came from a French name of LeBaisuer or LeBaissuer. Meaning, "one who kisses".  The LeBaisuer's were French Huguenots that were percecuted and fled France to other near by countries. Because of this the name has been corrupted many times over through contact with the Germans and English. Some of these  names are as follows:

  The German name Boesher, in German means bushy hair, which may indicate a cow lick.
