The name Bracelint is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone 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.

Bracelint Early Origins



The surname Bracelint 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



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Bracelint or a variant listed above: John Bracegirdle, who settled in New England in 1774.
