Brasfield Early Origins



The surname Brasfield was first found in Berkshire, 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 1185 when Leofric de Brayfield held estates in that shire. They held a family seat at Cold Brayfield.
