Bernevyle is a name whose history on English soil dates back to the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066. The Bernevyle family lived in Berwickshire. The name refers to the family's former place of residence, Burneville, in the Eure region of Normandy. After arriving in England with the Norman invasion in 1066, the family gave their name to the area over which they held lordship.

Early Origins of the Bernevyle family


The surname Bernevyle was first found in Berwickshire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Bernevyle Spelling Variations


A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules.

Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Burnville, Burnfield, Burneville, Burnefield, Bournville and many more.

Migration of the Bernevyle family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Bernevyle or a variant listed above: Frederick Brownville who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1840; Elizabeth Brownfeild settled in Georgia in 1737; Joe Brownfield settled in Georgia in 1735 with his wife.
