The Brain Family

A Family Search

I have been doing some research into my family’s history and have traced my roots back to the Brain’s of Mickleton/Ebrington and Hidcote and would be very interested to hear from any current members of the ‘Brain’ family that had ancestors who lived there. I descended from Robert – [1772-1849] and who married a Sarah Yeates [1794]. The last of my grandfathers to be born in Mickleton was a Joseph [baptised 3/4/1853] He later moved to Birmingham in the mid 1870’s

  • I left the Village in 1962, but I have lovely memories of the Brain family who lived in Back Lane with two daughters, Maureen and Christine…not sure if the father was around at that time. Mrs Brain had a smallholding on the Campden Road, somewhere close to the railway bridge. She kept lots of chickens there, and sold the eggs.
    Not sure if this is part of your research, but hope it helps.
    My name is Irene Reay, nee Sherwin, my parents owned the village shop.

  • Robert Brain was one of my 5x great grandfathers. You don’t mention his parents, Robert Brain & Ann Hadland, who married in 1771. I’ve done further research on their families.
