Name Meaning

English: probably a variant spelling of Bircham, a habitational name from a group of villages in Norfolk (Great Bircham, Bircham Newton, and Bircham Tofts), named with Old English brēc ‘newly cultivated ground’ + hām ‘homestead’. There is also a Bircham in Devon, named with Old English birce ‘birch’ + hām or hamm ‘enclosure hemmed in by water’, which could have given rise to the surname.
