History

The Brayshaw family has a long history, tracing back to 1379, with a large portion of their lineage found in the Yorkshire area of England. This includes a notable relation to the Giggleswick parish and School, including the Brayshaw Library at Giggleswick School, where generations of the Brayshaws were educated.

Of the more recent family represented in this fonds is Thomas Brayshaw (1854 – 1931), located in Stackhouse, who was employed in the legal profession and served as a governor for the Giggleswick school. He was an avid historian of the Settle area, and published on the topic. His son, Thomas Brayshaw (1886 to 1967), was born in Settle, Yorkshire. He served in World Wars I and II, moved to Canada in 1911, and became a well-known sport fisherman who studied and illustrated fish in multiple publications. His son, T. C. Brayshaw (1919-2014), was born in Yorkshire but lived most of his life in Canada, where he was a botanist.
