Origin of Broyles, Meaning of Broyles

Origin: BRILES is a variant of the name BROYLES, which is a variant of the name BREYHEL, BREYEL, BRUEL, BREUL, or BRUHL, etc. (These 5 names were found in church documents in Germany.) The original immigrant was Johannes BREYHEL (as spelled in legal documents at Germanna, VA), who became known as John BROYLES. He came from Du?lingen (Dusslingen), Germany, in Baden-W?rttemberg (Baden-Wuerttemberg). In Germany, his name was found with the 5 various spellings as noted above. John,s first son, Hans Jacob, became known as a BROYLES, and most of his descendants still have that name. John's second son, Conrad, became known as a BRILES, and most of his descendants kept that name, although a few reverted to BROYLES. Hans Jacob and his children and their offspring migrated to what is now Washington and Greene Counties, TN. (TN was then part of NC.) Conrad and his children and their offspring migrated to what is now still NC. In the original land grant documents in NC, Conrad's name was spelled BRILES, and from that time on, all legal documents used this spelling. The family just figured it was easier to do that than try to correct court documents. There are a few other variants of the name in the US today, BRYLES and BROYHILL being the major
