Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Brabing is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in Brabant in Flanders, which was formerly a province of France and is now part of the Netherlands.

Brabing Early Origins



The surname Brabing was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times before the advent of the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Brabings to arrive in North America: W. Brabine who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1820; Alexander Braband arrived in Bermuda in 1635; and then moved to Boston under the name Brabant.
