The Brailsford family around the world are, as far as we know, all descended from the
Brailsford family of North Wingfield, in NE Derbyshire, UK. The Brailsfords of Derbyshire
are one of the few families in England that can be traced back to 1086 and the Domesday Book.
In 1086 Elfin, from whom the Brailsfords trace their descent, held considerable lands at
Brailsford, Bupton, Osmaston and Thurvaston in South Derbyshire. Whilst most Domesday Book
land holders were Normans who accompanied William of Normandy at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, Elfin is a name of Saxon origin.
