The Bracelind family name dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. The name comes from when an early member 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.

Bracelind Early Origins



The surname Bracelind 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.

Bracelind Spelling Variations



Bracelind has been spelled many different ways. Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Many variations of the name Bracelind have been found, including Bracegirdle, Bracegerdle, Brasgirdle and others.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Bracelinds to arrive on North American shores: John Bracegirdle, who settled in New England in 1774.
