The Brinckerhoff surname is of topographic origin, deriving from the Middle Low German word "brinc," which referred to a raised meadow among the low-lying marshlands. No doubt the first bearers of this name lived or worked on a such a piece of land.

Brinckerhoff Early Origins



The surname Brinckerhoff was first found in Holland, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region. The name was first recorded in North Holland, a province of the Netherlands. The principal cities are Amsterdam, Haarlem and Hilversum. It was the seat of the old Counts of Holland. One early record is of a Johann Brinkeman, resident of Barth, Pomerania in the year 1334.
