Name Meaning

English: habitational name, usually from Bredbury (Cheshire), occasionally perhaps from Bradbury (Durham), although evidence for the latter origin is yet to be found. Both placenames meant ‘stronghold or manor house built with planks’, from Old English bred ‘board’ + burg in the dative case form byrig.
