Bruton Genealogy


Welcome to the Bruton Family Tree.

This Bruton family originated in South Gloucestershire, UK. and spread to Bristol, Canada and the USA.

There are many variations of the name Bruton. The first recorded, Auvrai de Breton, was found in Somerset and Dorset in 1066. He was granted a large number of Lordships by William the Conqueror. It is possible his name originated from a province in France and may be the origin of this Bruton family.

With over 11,700 individuals in my family tree it has become unmanageable for a single web site. Therefore it has been split into a number of smaller sites based on major family groups. This means that inevitably there is some overlapping of surnames. The names that interest you may also be found in any of these sub-trees, so it's probably worth checking -
