The Braycewel name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in Yorkshire, where they took their name from the village of Bracewell which was originally in the West Riding of Yorkshire, but now in Lancashire. The name was originally rendered in the Old English form Breiorwella, which meant the dweller at the broad-well, and would have been used to denote residence near the village well.

Braycewel Early Origins



The surname Braycewel was first found in the West Riding of Yorkshire at Bracewell and Brogden a civil parish. Bracewell dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Braisuelle, land held by Roger de Poitou. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Braycewel were among those contributors: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
