The name Brownle was first used by the ancient Strathclyde-Briton people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. The first Brownle family lived in either of two settlements called Brownlee in the counties of Ayrshire and Lanarkshire.

Brownle Early Origins



The surname Brownle was first found in Belton, in Lincolnshire, where conjecturally they were descended from Gautier d'Aincourt, who was of Royal blood, related to King William's younger brother, a Norman Baron who was granted those lands by William the Conqueror for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



The North American colonies beckoned, with their ample land and opportunity as their freedom from the persecution suffered by so many Clan families back home. Many Scots even fought against England in the American War of Independence to gain this freedom. Recently, clan societies have allowed the ancestors of these brave Scottish settlers to rediscover their familial roots. Among them: Rich Brownley who settled in Barbados in 1635; Luke Brownlie settled in Virginia in 1639; Alice, Ann, George, James, Jane, John Brownlee settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1770.
