Brassinton Early Origins



The surname Brassinton was first found in Derbyshire at Brassington, a village and civil parish in the Derbyshire Dales district which dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed at that time as Branzinctun. [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 "estate associated with a man called Brandsige," from the Old English personal name + "-ing" + "tun." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
Hence, conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Brassington, Henry de Ferrers, a Norman Baron who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. Henry was seigneur of St.Hillaire de Ferrers near Bernay in Normandy. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
