Brash Early Origins



The surname Brash was first found in Hamburg, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. Brask is also connected to several place names in the Holstein region.
