Origins Available: English, Irish


The name Brickhouse was derived from the Brythonic and Old English words for 'hill' (Brythonic: breg, Anglo Saxon hyll). The prefix 'Bow' comes from an Anglo Saxon personal name, Bolla. In Buckinghamshire, there are still three villages named Brickhill: Bow Brickhill, a village and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynes; Great Brickhill, a village and civil parish in Aylesbury Vale district; and Little Brickhill, a village and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynes. The latter was referred to as Brichelle in the Domesday Book.

Brickhouse Early Origins



The surname Brickhouse was first found in Buckinghamshire since the time of the Domesday Book. While many of the records lead to this county, there is a record of Brickhill as a civil parish and electoral ward within northern Bedford, in Bedfordshire. This village derived its name from "Brickhill Farm," which dates back to a 17th century manor house located there.
