The ancestors of the first families to use the name Brysbynd lived in ancient Scotland in the kingdom of Dalriada. The name was then used as a nickname for a person who had sustained a broken bone. This surname derived from the Old French word, briser, which means to break, and the Old English word, bn, which means bone. This was also a nickname, given to a person who was often involved in fights, which resulted in the breaking of bones. Members of the Brysbynd family were found in the county of Renfrew (now part of the Strathclyde region), in Scotland, where the family can trace its origin to shortly after the Norman Conquest, in 1066.

Early Origins of the Brysbynd family


The surname Brysbynd was first found in Renfrewshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rinn Fri), a historic county of Scotland, today encompassing the Council Areas of Renfrew, East Renfrewshire, and Iverclyde, in the Strathclyde region of southwestern Scotland. Probably the first of the name in Scotland was William Brisbone, whose name appears on a list of archers sent from Berwick to Roxburgh in 1298. Thomas Brisbane or de Birsbane had a charter in Aberdeenshire from Robert I. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Brysbynd family to the New World and Oceana


Many who arrived from Scotland settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would go on to become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. In the American War of Independence, many settlers who remained loyal to England went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Their descendants later began to recover the lost Scottish heritage through events such as the highland games that dot North America in the summer months. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Brysbynd family emigrate to North America: Margaret Brisben arrived in Maryland in 1664; John Brisban arrived in New York in 1819; Mrs. Brisbane with two children who landed in New Orleans in 1822..

The Brysbynd 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: Certamine summo
Motto Translation: In the battle's height.
