The Anglo-Saxon name Brim comes from when the family resided in Gloucestershire, where they held the manor and lands of Breme in the village and parish of that name. It is from the manorial name from which the family name is derived. The name Breme meant fierce, or vigorous.

Brim Early Origins



The surname Brim was first found in Gloucestershire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

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 Brim or a variant listed above:

Brim Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Nich Brim, who arrived in Virginia in 1704
  • Felicite Brim, who landed in South Carolina in 1763

Brim Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Ant Brim, who landed in San Francisco, California in 1851
