Batch #M01288-1. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:N2TS-NQ3" Though there was an argument made for the established pattern of "bran" in name spelling by Alys Mackyntoich (Ogress) "There's also Brangwayna (1250), Brangwyne (1283) and Brangwayn (1300), all found in R&W s.n. Brangwin. The latter two are found as matronyms."
