While at first glance it would seem that the name is derived from hill, early instances of the name point to the true root as being hole; the sound of the name changed over time until it reached its modern form of Brockhil.

The Great Migration



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 Brockhil were among those contributors: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
