The ancient roots of the Brockshown family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Brockshown comes from when the family 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.

Brockshown Early Origins



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

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Brockshown arrived in North America very early: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
