Brinsley – A brief historical background

Brinsley is an ancient settlement, mentioned in the Doomsday Book as “Bruneslia”. The name appears in other documents as “Brun-ners-ley”, meaning Leys or meadows belonging to a lord named Brun. A manor was established here in the reign of Edward the ‘Confessor. The Manor and the Hall were both fine residences built in the 12th Century for the Duke of Devonshire. They have given their names to the farms which are now based on the same sites.
