The origins of the Anglo-Saxon name Brut come from its first bearer, who was a stout person. The surname Brut is derived from the Old English word brode, which means broad. This in turn is derived from the Old English word brad, which has the same meaning.

Brut Early Origins



The surname Brut was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

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 Bruts to arrive in North America: Mary Broad who settled in Virginia in 1738; Robert Broad settled in New England in 1773; Thomas Broad settled in Virginia in 1637.
