Origins of surname

This name is derived from the personal name of the same spelling, or perhaps originally 'Bertran', and is made up of the Germanic berht = 'brilliant' and hramn = 'crow'. Quite why this combination should have become popular as a personal name, as it remains in France today, is uncertain.

Early records

The name is found in Grouville baptism records from 1585 onwards into the 17th century, and then died out. It reappeared, presumably from fresh immigrants from France, in St Ouen, St Martin and St Saviour in the late 19th century
