BRANDT Family History

This name, with variant spellings Brand, Brandt, Braund, Braun(s) and Bront, derives from the Germanic male given name Brando, a short form of various compound personal name, such as Hildebrand, containing the element "brand", sword or fire-brand, a derivative of "brinnan", to flash. The names Brant and Brand form the first element of various placenames, such as Brandeston, (Suffolk), and Branston in Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. As these places were recorded prior to 1066, the indication is that Brant and Brand were introduced to England by the Norsemen, Brand(r) being a common old Norse name. One, Ralph Brand was recorded in the 1184 "Pipe Rolls of London", and a Hamo Braund in the 1219 "Curia Regis Rolls of Bedfordshire"...
