Brammer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Brammer is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in Bramhall in Greater Manchester. Bromale was a township in the parish of Stockport.

Early Origins of the Brammer family


The surname Brammer 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]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
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.

Brammer Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Brammer has been recorded under many different variations, including Bramhall, Bramall, Bramhill, Brammall, Bramwell and others.

Migration of the Brammer family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Brammer or a variant listed above:

The Brammer 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.
