The origins of the Brittebrege name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Brittebrege was originally derived from a family having lived in Sussex, in the hamlet of Broadbridge in the parish of Bosham. Broadbrige means "bridge over the broad river crossing," and is three miles west of Chichester and been inhabited since the period of Roman occupation of Britain. Another village in the area is called Broadbridge Heath, and is the birthplace of Percy Bysshe Shelley, the great romantic poet who lived from 1792 to 1822. The name Broadbridge is a compound of the Old English words brad and brycg, which mean "broad" and "bridge," respectively.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
