Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Brumheyde is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in Yorkshire, where the name Broomhead was a place-name describing a hilltop with broom bushes.

Brumheyde Early Origins



The surname Brumheyde was first found in Yorkshire, where the family held "an estate in Hallamshire which passed from the family through an heiress so early as temp. Richard II." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
“This surname with several variants is still well known in the West Riding.” [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Brumheyde Spelling Variations



The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Brumheyde has been spelled many different ways, including Broomhead, Bromeheuede, Bromehed, Broomehed, Bromhead, Brumhead, Brumit and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Brumheydes to arrive in North America: Joseph Broomhead, who arrived in New York city in 1819; George Broomhead, who was naturalized in Wisconsin in 1862; James Broomhead who arrived in Philadelphia in 1870.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Concordia Res Crescunt
Motto Translation: Things increase by union.
