Origins of surname

The name is derived from the old English bridde, meaning a bird, and was originally given as a nickname to one thought to bear a fancied resemblance to a bird. This may have been from bright dress, or bright eyed and active, or perhaps to some one with a beautiful singing voice.

Early records

The name first appeared in Jersey records in 1812 with the baptism in St Helier of Anne Jane, daughter of John Bird and Mary
