The Branyon name was coined by the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Branyon was originally a name given to someone who worked as a person dwelling within a borough and occupying an important position akin to that of reeve. The surname Branyon may also reflect the occupation of a chamberlain or servant of the bower. However, Branyon may also be a patronymic surname which means the son of Bruman.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Branyon are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Branyon include: Brooman, Bruman, Brunman, Bromman, Brounman and many more.

First found in Norfolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Branyon or a variant listed above: William Brooman who sailed to Barbados in 1694.
