Many variations of the name Brokerick have evolved since the time of its initial creation. In Gaelic it appeared as O Bruadair, which is derived from Bruadar, a common Norse forename. It is unclear as to whether or not the family is of Norse origin. But it should be noted that many people named Bruader are recorded as having lived in Ireland prior to the onset of the Danish invasions, including an Irish prince of the Heremon line, from whom the family claims descent.

Brokerick Early Origins



The surname Brokerick was first found in Carlow (Irish: Cheatharlach) a small landlocked area located in the province of Leinster in the South East of Ireland, where they were descended from the Ryans, Lords of Idrone, more specifically from Bruader or Bruadaran an Irish Prince of the Heremon line. His name was derived from the Irish "bruadair" which means "a dream." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



During the 19th century thousands of impoverished Irish families made the long journey to British North America and the United States. These people were leaving a land that had become beset with poverty, lack of opportunity, and hunger. In North America, they hoped to find land, work, and political and religious freedoms. Although the majority of the immigrants that survived the long sea passage did make these discoveries, it was not without much perseverance and hard work: by the mid-19th century land suitable for agriculture was short supply, especially in British North America, in the east; the work available was generally low paying and physically taxing construction or factory work; and the English stereotypes concerning the Irish, although less frequent and vehement, were, nevertheless, present in the land of freedom, liberty, and equality for all men. The largest influx of Irish settlers occurred with Great Potato Famine during the late 1840s. Research into passenger and immigration lists has brought forth evidence of the early members of the Brokerick family in North America: John Brodrick who settled in Philadelphia in 1766; followed by Patrick, Joseph, and John between 1840 and 1860. Edward, Henry, John, Joseph, Patrick Broderick all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860..

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: A cuspide corona
Motto Translation: By spear a crown.
