The Anglo-Saxon name Bradburrey comes from when the family resided in the county of Chester, where they derived their name from the town of Bredbury. The town's name is derived from the Old English words bred or brade which means broad and byrig, the original form of burh, which means fort. Thus, the name denotes the dweller at the broad fort.

Bradburrey Early Origins



The surname Bradburrey was first found in Greater Manchester at Bredbury, a suburban town within the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport. Historically a township, in the parish and union of Stockport, hundred of Macclesfield, N. division of the county of Chester, Bredbury dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Brethberie.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Ellinor Bradbury who settled in Maryland in 1682; with her husband Roger, three sons and two daughters; Thomas Bradbury settled in Maine in 1630; and another Thomas Bradbury settled in Boston in 1700..
