An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


This occupational surname was derived from the Old English term "Brungar" which meant "brown spear." Alternatively, the name could have been derived from the Old German word "Brunger."

Brouncker Early Origins



The surname Brouncker was first found in Dorset where the first record of the name appears as Brungar(us) in the Domesday Book. Thomas and William Brunger were listed in a census in Norfolk in 1275 and years later the name was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Somerset as Brunger atte Yate.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Brouncker arrived in North America very early: Robert Brunker who arrived in Philadelphia in 1867.
