The ancestors of the Broxhoomb surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the village and civil parish of Broxholm, near Lincoln in the county of Lincolnshire. This parish was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as lands held by Robert de Tosny. Today Broxholme is still located in the West Lindsey district, but has grown little since early times as according to the 2001 census it had a population of 58.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: a number of settlers who arrived by the 19th century.
