Brazier History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The enchanting region of Bourgoigne was the historical homeland of the prominent surname Brazier. Brazier is a topographic surname, which is a type of hereditary surname. These were given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. As a general rule, the greater the distance between an individual and their homeland, the larger the territory they were named after. For example, a person who only moved to another parish would be known by the name of their original village, while people who migrated to a different country were often known by the name of a region or country from which they came. The name Brazier was first found in Burgundy, where this family was established in a village in Côte-d'Or, in the district of Beaune.
