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. Bronwen has been spelled many different ways, including Brunwin, Brunswin, Brunwinus, Brunwyn, Brounwyne and many more.

First found in Suffolk, where evidence suggests they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest in the 11th century.

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bronwens to arrive in North America: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
