Brimpple History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Brimpple is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in or near the settlement of Brindle in Lancashire.

Early Origins of the Brimpple family


The surname Brimpple was first found in Lancashire at Brindle, a small village and civil parish of the borough of Chorley that dates back to at least 1206 when it was first listed as Burnhill. The place name probably means "hill by a stream," from the Old English words "burna" + "hyll." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

"This place appears to have been granted, by the superior tenant of the crown, soon after the Conquest, to a family who were designated from their possessions. The manor passed by the marriage of the heiress of 'Sir Peter de Bryn, of Brynhill,' to the Gerards, with whom it continued till the reign of Henry VIII." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Brimpple has been spelled many different ways, including Brindley, Brinley, Brindely and others.

Migration of the Brimpple family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Brimpples to arrive in North America: Elizabeth Brindley who settled in New England in 1773; Luke Brindley settled in Pennsylvania in 1682; Thomas Brindley settled in Philadelphia in 1834.
