The name Bracelent finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a maker of breech-girdles. The first portion of the surname is derived from the Old English word brec, which in turn comes from the Old French word braie, which means breeches. The second portion of the name comes from the Old English word gyrdel, which means girdle.

Bracelent Early Origins



The surname Bracelent was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat, probably well before the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



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 Bracelent or a variant listed above: John Bracegirdle, who settled in New England in 1774.
