The name Browneion is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Browneion was a name used for a person named John who had brown hair or a dark complexion. The personal name John was so common in medieval times that a qualifying adjective became necessary became necessary to distinguish between different people with that name. This was particularly necessary due to the fairly common practice of giving the personal name to all the sons in a family.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Browneion were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: William Brownjohn who arrived in Georgia in 1733.
