Origins of surname
This surname is first found in England in the 13th century. It was a nickname for a cheerful, lively person or a boaster, from the Medieval English word bragge, meaning lively, gay, active, brisk.
The first couple to start a family in Jersey were William Bragg and Ann, whose first child was baptised in St Helier in 1829. The couple appear to have married before arriving in the island.
