Early Origins of the Brintle family
The surname Brintle 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." 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." CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Brintle family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Brintle were among those contributors:
