BRUM Family History

This unusual name is one of the variant forms of the more familiar surname 'Broom' or 'Broome'. As such, the name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and can be either a topographical or a locational surname. If the former, the name denotes residence near a place where broom or gorse grew, derived from the Old English pre 7th Century 'brom', broom, gorse. As a locational surname, Broom(e) and Brum derive from any one of the various places called Broom, in Bedfordshire, County Durham and Worcestershire, Broome, in Norfolk, Shropshire and Warwickshire, and Brome, in Suffolk.
