What does bringhurst mean?

Bringhurst is a small village and civil parish in the Harborough district of south-east Leicestershire, bordering Northamptonshire and Rutland. Nearby places are Cottingham in Northants, Great Easton and Drayton in Leicestershire, and Caledecott in Rutland. The village antedates the Norman Conquest and was given by Ranulfe, a kinsman of King Edward the Confessor to the Abbey of Peterborough. The village church of St Nicholas is 13th century in date. The older houses are made of local stone and either roofed with thatch or collyweston slate. The name of the village predates its use as a family name, the earliest mention of which is dated 1260. Earlier variations of the name, such as "Bruninghurst" were first recorded in 1188. Other variations include "Bringherst", "Brinkhurst", "Bringhast", and "Bringhaste". The etymology of Bringhurst comes from the personal name "Bryni" derived from "bryne", meaning "fire" or "flame", combined with the word "hurst" or "hyrst" meaning "wooded hill" in Old English, related to Old Saxon, and "hurst" or "horst" in Old High German.
