Brockwell Name Meaning

English: probably a habitational name from an unidentified minor place named with Old English brocc ‘badger’ + wiella ‘spring’, ‘stream’ or hol ‘hole’, ‘hollow’. Old English brocchol is known to have developed into Brockwell in at least one instance, in Derbyshire. Both Brockwell Park in London and Brockwell Farm in Buckinghamshire are of comparatively recent origin, probably deriving their names from the surname rather than vice versa.
