Name Meaning

English: locative name from one or other of many minor places named with Old English brōm + halh ‘secluded place overgrown with broom’. Compare Bramhall and Broomhall , which have the same etymology and share many spellings. Sometimes -hill has been substituted for -hall, but it is also possible that minor places named with -hill are an alternative source.
