Meaning of "Bowstead"

Name derived from a Hill known as Boustead Hill situated in the extreme north of England not far from Carlisle. A Boustead was ` combination of the Saxon words Bou or similar, referred to cows. The stead bit would almost certainly refer to steading, meaning a man-made fenced area for the control and safety of cattle herds. So Boustead Hill was a safe place for herding and corralling cattle. not very romantic is it. Most Bowsteads or Bousteads on the male side seem to have become either ministers of the Anglican church or schoolmasters or both. My lot were teachers but quite successful ones. I was a quite radical (60s/70s artist who also taught in some of the more interesting and radical art schools in the UK. Better get back to them thar cows. John B
