Brown Crest and Family Coat of Arms

Brown Genealogy & History

Brown originated as a descriptive nickname rather than as a patronym. It referred to a person's complexion or the color of his hair or possibly clothing. Brown (or Browne) family history goes back at least as far as the fourteenth century with the current spelling, or as far as the eleventh with earlier spellings such as Brun. Brown genealogy is typically English, Scottish, or German but can even be Italian if it is an Anglicized form of the common Italian given name Bruno. The crest of the Scottish clan Broun consists of a rampant lion holding a golden fleur-de-lis in its right paw.
