The Anglo-Saxon name Bramal comes from when the family resided in Bramhall in Greater Manchester. Bromale was a township in the parish of Stockport.

Bramal Early Origins



The surname Bramal was first found in Greater Manchester where the place dates back to at least the Domesday Book where it is listed as Bramale. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The place name literally means "nook of land where broom grows" derived from the Old English words "brom" + "halh" [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

. However, some of the family has Scottish roots as noted by Broomhall Castle, built in 1874, located in Menstrie, Clackmannanshire, Scotland. It is still in good condition and today is in use as a hotel.

The Great Migration

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: Thomas Bromhall, who settled in Maryland in 1673; Charles Bromhall, a child apprentice who came to Antigua (Antego) in 1737; George Bramhall who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1858.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Sanguine Christe tuo
Motto Translation: By Thy Blood O' Christ.
