The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Braunteston come from when the family resided in Brandeston, a parish in Suffolk on the River Deben or in one of the villages named below.

Braunteston Early Origins



The surname Braunteston was first found in various shires including Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Staffordshire where we find today villages and civil parishes named Branston. These place names were derived from the Old English personal name Brant + "tun," as in "a farmstead or a village of a man called Brant." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
All three locals were listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Brantestone (Leicestershire) Branztune (Lincolnshire) and Bronstinson (Staffordshire.)

The Great Migration



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 Braunteston or a variant listed above: John Bramston who arrived in America in 1746; John Branston in America in 1773 and J. Branston in Philadelphia in 1856.
