Origin of the Name Briggs

The Briggs family history was found in the archives. Briggs is a locality name taken from a person who lived near a bridge. Variants include Brigs, Brigg, Bridge, Bridges, Bridger, Bridgeman and Brigman. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Hugh ate Brugge, Oxford, and a Roger ate Brugge, Oxford, who were recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273. An Elena de Bryg held land 'in vico de la Grene', Aberdeen, Scotland, in the year 1382. In Ireland this name and its variants were first introduced into Ulster Province by settlers and traders who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
The Briggs coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Briggs descendants.
