Broadbrige means "bridge over the broad river crossing," and is three miles west of Chichester and been inhabited since the period of Roman occupation of Britain. Another village in the area is called Broadbridge Heath, and is the birthplace of Percy Bysshe Shelley, the great romantic poet who lived from 1792 to 1822. The name Broadbridge is a compound of the Old English words brad and brycg, which mean "broad" and "bridge," respectively.

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 Brodeebrige or a variant listed above: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
