Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Bambrish 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.

Early Origins of the Bambrish family


The surname Bambrish 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.

Migration of the Bambrish family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bambrish were among those contributors: 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.
