The Braund Society is currently hosting a series of events to celebrate its 30th anniversary and to unite its many members all over the world.
The surname Braund is indigenous to North Devon – although the name can now be seen around the globe where families over the centuries have emigrated and settled.
As a family history society (linked to the Devon Family History Society and The Guild of One name Studies), much research has been undertaken to discover what makes this name special and of course, unique. Links have been found in many Devon places – Braundsworthy, Black Torrington, Bucks Mills, Clovelly, to name a few.
The anniversary celebrations aim to unite as many people as possible with this name or who have a family connection.
Who do you think you are? Pop along and find out…
There will be displays of family artifacts and a special display of Braund wedding photos, present and past. Visits will be organised to places of special Braund significance and there will be ample opportunity to search through the society’s albums to trace your family connections. A special auction will be held of original watercolours, beautifully painted by a society member, of places with a connection to Braunds – all this with typical North Devon hospitality and comfort.
