Origins Available: English, Irish


The Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain were the first to use the name of Bramint. The name had a practical origin since it came from when its initial bearer worked as a person dwelling within a borough and occupying an important position akin to that of reeve. The surname Bramint may also reflect the occupation of a chamberlain or servant of the bower. However, Bramint may also be a patronymic surname which means the son of Bruman.

Bramint Early Origins



The surname Bramint was first found in Norfolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Bramint Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Bramint include Brooman, Bruman, Brunman, Bromman, Brounman and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Bramint or a variant listed above: William Brooman who sailed to Barbados in 1694.
