The Brokhole name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived near the brock-hole, or badger hole. Brockholes is a small village in West Yorkshire and true to its name is home to an extensive network of badger setts which are now carefully watched over by a local badger protection group.

Early Origins of the Brokhole family


The surname Brokhole was first found in Lancashire at the township of Myerscough. " This is one of the forest townships in the parish, the manor of which has been held of the duchy of Lancaster by the Brockholes family, whose ancestor resided here in the beginning of the 17th century."

Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Myerscough Hall was built in 1577 and was presumably the family seat.

Migration of the Brokhole family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Brokhole were among those contributors: John Brockhole who settled in Virginia in 1747.
