Origins of surname
Although boucher is French for butcher, this surname is believed to be derived from buis, French for the box plant.
The Bouchere family in Jersey appears to have originated in Moselle, in the north-east of France, and to have no connection with Leboucher of Normandy
It is not clear which of these names is a variation of Bouchéré, which is properly spelt with two accents.
- Leboucher, found in Normandy
