A family of Strathclyde-Briton were the first to use the name Brownlow. They lived in either of two settlements called Brownlee in the counties of Ayrshire
The surname Brownlow was first found in Belton, in Lincolnshire
, where conjecturally they were descended from Gautier d'Aincourt, who was of Royal blood, related to King William's younger brother, a Norman Baron
who was granted those lands by William the Conqueror for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.
In the era before dictionaries, there were no rules governing the spelling or translation of names or any other words. Consequently, there are an enormous number of spelling variations in Medieval Scottish names. Brownlow has appeared as Brownlee, Brownlea, Brownlie, Brownlees, Brownley, Brownlow, Brownless, Brownlee, Brunlee, Brunlees, Brownleis, Brounley and many more.
