The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations
are common among early Anglo-Saxon
names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Bronesmyth has been recorded under many different variations, including Brownsmith, Brounesmyth, Brounsmyth, Bronesmyth, Bronsmyth and many more.

Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Bronesmyth or a variant listed above: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
