The history of the Brabon family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in Brabant in Flanders, which was formerly a province of France and is now part of the Netherlands.

The surname Brabon 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.

Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Brabon include Brabyn, Brabyne, Brabine, Brabines, Brabant, Brabent and many more.

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Brabon or a variant listed above: 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.
