BRADWELL Family History

Recorded as Bradwell, Broadwell, Brodwell and others, this is an English surname. It is locational and derives from any of the places called Broadwell in the counties of Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, or the six Bradwells inBuckinghamshire, Derbyshire and others. The first two of these are recorded as Bradewelle in the famous Domesday Book of 1086, whilst that in Warwickshire appears in the Pipe Rolls of the county in 1130 as 'Bradewella'. They all have much the same meaning which is nothing to do with wide wells but are derived from the Old English pre 7th century 'brad', meaning broad, and 'waella', a stream or small river, possibly ones that flooded.
