Origins Available: English, French, German, Italian


The proud Norman name of Brunne was developed in England soon after Norman Conquest of England in 1066. It was name for a person who has "brown hair" or "brown eyes," or "dresses habitually in brown." The name springs from similar roots in Old English, Old English, Old Norse, Old French, Old German. It is also possible that a given instance of the name is derived from a short form of an Old English personal name such as "Brunwine" or "Brungar."

Brunne Early Origins



The surname Brunne was first found in Middlesex at Spitalfields, a parish, in the union of Whitechapel, Tower division of the hundred of Ossulstone. " The present name of the parish is derived from a priory of canons of the Augustine order, and an hospital for poor brethren, entitled 'the New Hospital of our Lady without Bishopsgate,' founded in the year 1197, by Walter Brune, citizen, and afterwards sheriff, of London, and Roesia his wife."

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Brunne were among those contributors: Lewis Brune settled in Maryland in 1666; Rachel Brune settled in Virginia in 1663; William Henry Brune settled in Maryland. William Brune settled in Texas in 1848 with his brothers Edward and G. Brune..
