Origin of the Name Britt

The ancient history of the name Britt was found in the archives. The name Britt is ultimately of Norman origin and is a descriptive name for a Breton. This name has a number of variants including Brit, Brett, Britee, Britiza and Bret. A very early record of the name refers to an Edward Brit who was recorded in the Domesday Book of Devon in the year 1066, during the reign of King William The Conqueror. In Ireland the spelling Brett is the usual form found in Counties Waterford and Tipperary while Britt is found in Connaught Province. The mediaeval form of the name is found in records as le Bret, le Brette and le Bryt. As early as the year 1199 a Milo le Bret is recorded as having obtained grants of lands in County Dublin while some years later a le Bret was in recorded as being in possession of the Castle of Knocktopher. Walter and Geoffrey le Bret were the Sheriffs of County Tipperary in the years 1295 and 1302 respectively with the barony of Ballybritt being named for them.
The Britt 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 Britt descendants.
