Bringle is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from a family once having lived in or near the settlement of Brinkley in the county of Cambridgeshire.

Bringle Early Origins



The surname Bringle was first found in Cambridgeshire at Brinkley, a small village about 15 miles from Cambridge in the union of Newmarket, hundred of Radfield. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The village dates back to the late 12th century when it was first listed as Brinkelai and literally meant "woodland clearing of a man called Brynca," from the Old English personal name + "leah." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

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 Bringle or a variant listed above:

Bringle Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • D. Lynch Bringle, aged 56, who landed in America, in 1896

Bringle Settlers in United States in the 20th Century

  • Andrew Bringle, aged 20, who settled in America from Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1907
  • George W. Bringle, aged 21, who emigrated to the United States, in 1923

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Mutabimur
Motto Translation: Be changed
