About the Brome surname

origin

From Stirnet's "Brome1" page (membership required to view without interruption): "(1) It seems that, at least until modern times, 'Brome' and 'Broome' were virtually interchangeable. There is a village called Brome in Suffolk and one called Broome in Norfolk. It appears that there were Brome or Broome Halls in (at least) Norfolk. Shropshire (Salop) & Warwickshire. It is not known if the families which founded those halls shared a common root and gave their names to the hall, or if they took their family names from different places of same/similar name, or (what is perhaps most likely) it was a combination thereof. Commoners starts its article on the family covered by the lower section below with the following: "The very ancient and eminent family of Brome lineally derives from the Earls of Anjou, who took the surname of Brome or Broome, after their pilgrimage to the holy land; Fulk, Earl of Anjou, having worn a sprig of the Broome plant, as the symbol of humility." Fulk's son Geoffrey was known as 'Plantagenet' in recognition of that symbol (see Plantagenet1).
