Early Origins of the Broxbourn family

The surname Broxbourn was first found in Herefordshire at Broxbourne, a parish, in the union of Ware. The parish was first listed as Brochesborne [1] in the Domesday Book of 1086. Literally the place name means "stream frequented by badgers," from the Old English words "brocc" + "burna." [2]

In the time of William the Conqueror, the manor belonged to Adeling, wife of Hugh de Grentemaisnill; it afterwards came to the Knights Templars, and lastly to the prior and brethren of the hospital of St. John of Jerusalem, who occupied the more ancient part of the present mansion of Broxbournbury. James I., on his way from Scotland, was entertained at the manor-house, where he was met by many of the nobility and the officers of state. [3]

Broxburn is a village, in the parish of Uphall, county of Linlithgow, Scotland. [4]
