Brun 'of Brownsover'
The only Brun recorded as a subtenant in 1086 held (as Bruno) 2 hides worth 20s. at ‘Over’ (Gavra) in Warwickshire from Geoffrey de la Guerche. The place was afterwards named after him as Brownsover (Bruneswavere in 1236), distinguishing it from neighbouring Churchover (Ekwall 1960: 354). The fuller place-name is likely to have been in use locally already in 1086.
