Banebrigg History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Banebrigg 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 Banebrigg family


The surname Banebrigg 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 Banebrigg family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Banebrigg 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.
