The origins of the name Brovine are with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the baptismal name Brun. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are hardly any Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Brovine Early Origins



The surname Brovine was first found in Leicestershire 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. The name was originally Bregwin, pronounced Brewin.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Brovines to arrive in North America: William and Thomas Brewin who landed in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1840; Obadiah Bruen landed in Massachusetts in 1640; Patrick Bruen landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1838.
