BRAMWELL Family History

This interesting name is of English locational origin from some unidentified spot, probably lost as a result of enforced "clearing" and dispersal of former inhabitants to make way for sheep pastures at the height of the wool trade in the 14th Century. The Black Death of 1348 may also have contributed to this phenomenon. The placename itself, was composed of the old English per 7th Century words "brom", broom, gorse plus "well(a)", spring, stream. The surname itself is distributed fairly evenly throughout England. The surname first appears in the 12th Century (see below). Homfrey Bramwell was christened at Mobberly, Cheshire in August 1582, while Elizabeth Bramwell married Humphrey Hales at Nantwich Cheshire on February 2nd 1616...

Hi, I’m going through old books with a great aunt. Found a book printed in 1805 with the Bramwell name plate inside. It has the 3 cranes and the name Henry Bramwell. I can send pictures if requested:)

Ross Bramwell

I'm interested in the history of the Bramwell name and hopefully find relatives.
