The Anglo-Saxon name Brockle comes from when the family resided near the brock-hole, or badger hole. 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 Brockle.

Brockle Early Origins



The surname Brockle was first found in Worcestershire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

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 Brockle or a variant listed above: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
