Brockwell Family History
Brockwell Name Meaning
English: habitational name from Brockwell in Wootton Courtenay (Somerset) or from an unidentified minor place so named with Old English brocc ‘badger’ + wella ‘spring stream’ or hol ‘hole hollow’. Old English brocchol is known to have developed into Brockwell in at least one instance in Derbyshire. Both Brockwell Park in London and Brockwell Farm in Buckinghamshire are of comparatively recent origin probably deriving their names from the surname rather than vice versa.
