The Anglo-Saxon name Brode comes from when the family resided in the village of Bright, in Cheshire. The name could have also been a nickname for someone who was bright or fair, or it could have been from the Old English word beorht which means bright.

Brode Early Origins



The surname Brode was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

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 Brode or a variant listed above:

Brode Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Emil Brode, who arrived in Ohio in 1887

Brode Settlers in United States in the 20th Century

  • Franz Brode, who landed in Alabama in 1917
