The name Brumby was derived from the village named Brumby in Frodingham, near Scunthorpe in Lincolnshire.

Brumby Early Origins



The surname Brumby was first found in Lincolnshire where the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Brumby, the King's lands, held by a Norman noble who was under-tenant but was not recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. The surname has always been quite rare but genealogical records reveal that families were found in the Upton area in the mid 1700's. In Australia, the term "brumby" refers to a feral horse but how the name came about is uncertain. One reference claims that brumbies were the bush name in Queensland for 'wild' horses. Another claims that Sergeant James Brumby who lived at Mulgrave Place in New South Wales, left the horses behind when he left for Tasmania in 1804.
