The ancestors of the name Brockholle date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Brockholle family lived near the brock-hole, or badger hole. Brockholes is a small village in West Yorkshire and true to its name is home to an extensive network of badger setts which are now carefully watched over by a local badger protection group.

Brockholle Early Origins



The surname Brockholle was first found in Lancashire at the township of Myerscough. " This is one of the forest townships in the parish, the manor of which has been held of the duchy of Lancaster by the Brockholes family, whose ancestor resided here in the beginning of the 17th century."

Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Myerscough Hall was built in 1577 and was presumably the family seat.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Brockholle or a variant listed above: John Brockhole who settled in Virginia in 1747.
