Brandford History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Brandford family


The surname Brandford was first found in Staffordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1175 when Osbert de Brandeford held estates at Brandford in that shire.

Bransford is a village and civil parish in the Malvern Hills district of Worcestershire.
