Meaning of this name is unknown.
Hetty Boswijk says: The name Boswijk was first formed in the Napoleonic times in the province of Groningen in Northern Holland. Napoleon determined that everyone should have a last name identifying their family. The forefather of the Boswijks worked land or a 'ward' on which there were woods. The Dutch word "Bos" means 'wood and the Dutch word "wijk" means 'ward'. The Dutch name Boswijk can therefore be translated into English as Woodward.
