The name Borowdul is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family lived in Cumberland, where they derived their name from the village of Borrowdale, in the parish of Crosthwaite, often called often called Grange in Borrowdale. The village dates back to at least c. 1170 when it was listed as Borgordale and meant "valley of the fort river" derived from the Old Scandinavian word "berg" + "by." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Borowdul Early Origins



The surname Borowdul was first found in Cumberland, but there is another Borrowdale located in the old County of Westmorland that is often called Westmorland Borrowdale to distinguish the difference of the two locations. This latter reference is of lesser importance historically to the surname.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Borowdul family emigrate to North America: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
