The present generation of the Brockshone family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the village and civil parish of Broxholm, near Lincoln in the county of Lincolnshire. This parish was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as lands held by Robert de Tosny. Today Broxholme is still located in the West Lindsey district, but has grown little since early times as according to the 2001 census it had a population of 58.

Brockshone Early Origins



The surname Brockshone was first found in Lincolnshire, at Broxholme, a parish, in the wapentake of Lawress. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Brockshone Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Brockshone include Broxholme, Broxholm, Broxsam, Broxholmn, Brocksholm, Broxhom and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Brockshone were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
