The Brueschke surname first began to be used in the German state of Bavaria, some time after the 12th century, when hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules, and names that were derived from locations became particularly common. The family name Brueschke is a local surname. Originally denoting the proprietorship of an estate or influence within a village, the German preposition von, which means from or of, used with local names, was taken as a mark of aristocracy. The surname Brueschke was given to someone who lived near the ford of a river. The name Brueschke is derived from the Lower German word brôk, which means water meadow or marsh, and refers to a person who lived by or near a watery or marshy land. The name Brueschke is also associated with the region known as Brutsche, which is situated near the town of Marienwerder in the northeastern German province of Prussia and many of those who are named Brueschke were born in this region. The name Brueschke can also be of nickname origin, derived from the German word bruoch which means short pants.

The Great Migration



The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from Bavaria who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. For many Bavarian tenant farmers, the chance to own their own land was a major incentive. So the widespread colonization of the United States began in 1650, when many immigrants from Germany settled in pockets in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. In Canada, German settlement centered in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were:
