Bright Genealogy & History

Bright is an ancient English name derived from Old English "beorht", meaning shining, and was a Medieval nickname for someone beautiful. Other possible derivations are from the Old English given name "Beorhthelm," which means bright-helmet, or for people who lived in the town Bright in Cheshire. Le Brythe and Brite are alternative spellings. Bright family history includes a family seat (feudal manor) in Cheshire in ancient times. The oldest coat of arms for the Bright family includes three stars on a blue shield, indicating a noble person who is loyal and truthful. In America, Bright genealogy first began with immigrants to Massachusetts in 1629.
