The ancient name of Bracelynd finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for 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.

Bracelynd Early Origins



The surname Bracelynd 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.

Bracelynd Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Bracelynd family name include Bracegirdle, Bracegerdle, Brasgirdle and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Bracelynd surname or a spelling variation of the name include : John Bracegirdle, who settled in New England in 1774.
