Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person.

Migration of the Braicebridge family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. 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 Braicebridge or a variant listed above: one of the first settlers, an unknown pioneer whose family rose to great stature in early Canada, naming the town of Bracebridge in Ontario.
