Brodribb History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient roots of the Brodribb family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Brodribb comes from when the family lived in Somerset, where they took their name from the parish of Bawdrip. The place-name first appears in the Domesday Book in 1086, as Bagetrep. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old English terms bage and trep, which mean badger and trap, respectively. It denoted a place where badgers were snared.

Early Origins of the Brodribb family


The surname Brodribb was first found in Kent 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.
