Name Meaning

English: habitational name from Bardwell in Suffolk, so named with an unattested Old English byname Bearda, a derivative of beard ( see Beard ) + Old English well(a) ‘spring’, ‘stream’. Alternatively, the first element may be from a dissimilated form of Old English bre(o)rd ‘brim’, ‘bank’.
