Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Braim family history?Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Braim is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in any one of a number of similarly named settlements. Bramham and Braham were found in the West Riding of Yorkshire and Brantham was found in Suffolk. Braham Hall was in Essex, as was Bream's Farm.
The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Braim has been spelled many different ways, including Braham, Braim, Bramham, Brame, Braem and others.
