This surname is of English locational origin from a place in Nottinghamshire called Bradmore. The name is found as Brademere in The Domesday Book of 1086, and is derived from the Old English pre 7th Century "brad" meaning broad and "mere" a lake; hence a broad lake. The surname is first recorded in the late 11th Century. One Alurdeus de Brademore is registered in the Knights Templars Records of Warwickshire (1185). On December 11th 1585, Christian Bradmore married Thomas Melborne in St. Peter-Le Poer's, London, Charles Bradmore married Anne Allen on December 12th 1682, in All Hallows, London Wall. Mary Bradmore daughter of Thomas and Mary Breadmore was christened on July 18th 1686, in St. James, Clerkenwell and on May 1st 1694, Elizabeth Bradmore daughter of Edward and Ann Bradmore was christened in St. Sepulchre, London. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Aelfger de Brademere, which was dated circa 1095, Bury, Suffolk, during the reign of King William 11, known as "Rufus", 1087 - 1100. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
