Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Bainebrigge is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the parish of Aysgarth in North Yorkshire. The family originated in Bainbridge, which derives from the Old Norse words Beinn which literally means straight, and from the Old English word "Brycg" which means bridge. According to tradition, a Saxon by the name of Bayn defended a bridge against the enemy.

Bainebrigge Early Origins



The surname Bainebrigge was first found in North Yorkshire where Bainbridge is a village and civil parish in the Richmondshire district. This township holds about 14,210 acres, and takes its name from the river Bain. The Roman name for Bainbridge was Virosidum and the remains of a Roman Fort are located just outside the village. Bembridge is a village and civil parish on the easternmost point of the Isle of Wight where the Bembridge Windmill is the only remaining windmill on the Isle of Wight and dates from around 1700.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Bainebrigge, or a variant listed above: Guy Bainbridge who settled in Cambridge Massachusetts in 1620; Christopher and Henry Banbridge, who both settled in Virginia in 1635; Robert Banbrig, who settled in Barbados with his servants in 1679.
