Anglo-Saxon name Brutuelle comes from when the family resided in the settlement of Britwell in the county of Buckinghamshire, or in the settlement of Britwell Prior, in the parish of Salome in Oxfordshire. Miles Crispin was recorded as the proprietor of the latter lands, which were then called Brutuelle, in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Migration of the Brutuelle family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Brutuelle or a variant listed above: Joseph Brittle who arrived in Maryland in 1774.
