Where did the English Bradburn family come from? What is the English Bradburn family crest and coat of arms? When did the Bradburn family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bradburn family history?The origins of the Bradburn name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Bradburn was originally derived from a family having lived in the region of Bradbour or of Bradbourne a local in Derbyshire. Checking further we found the name was derived from the Old English expression dweller by the wide stream.
Before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, French and other languages became incorporated into English through the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Bradburn include Bradbourn, Bradbourne, Bradborn, Bradborne, Bradburn and many more.
First found in Derbyshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
