The name Brynt arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Brynt family lived in Somerset in the area of Brent, from where their family name is taken. The Brynt family was originally from Conteville, in the arrondissement of Eure in Normandy.

Brynt Early Origins



The surname Brynt was first found in Somerset where they are conjecturally descended from Ralf de Conteville who was Lord of the manor of Brent, and an undertennant of the Abbot of Glastonbury, as shown in the Domesday Book in 1086. They were originally of Conteville in the arrondisement of Eure in Normandy.

Sir Falkes de Breauté (died 1226) also known as Fulk de Brent was loyal to both King John and later King Henry III. He played a key role in the Battle of Lincoln Fair in 1217. "At the Conquest [the parish of Luton, Bedofrdshire] was held in royal demesne; and in 1216 came into the possession of Baron Fulk de Brent, who built a strong castle there." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Brynt Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Brent, Brente and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Brynt or a variant listed above: Margaret Brent (born c. 1600, Gloucestershire, England - died 1669/71, Westmoreland county, Virginia) who arrived in Maryland in 1638 and obtained a patent for 70 acres.
