Links to other Brettell Sites
Youve probably arrived here from our own Brettell Family History pages. If not, you can follow this link to reach them.
Theres a Brettell One-Name Study web-site which you might care to look at. Its actually a study of one particular Bretell family, originating in Birmingham and moving to London (Shoreditch) at the start of the nineteenth century.
Most English Brettells (though not, I think, our part of the family) originate from the West Midlands, where theres a Brettell Lane named after the family.
There seem to be a number of academically impressive Brettells in the United States: Caroline Brettell, Professor of Anthropology at the Southern Methodist University; Richard Brettell, Professor of Aesthetic Studies, and Karen J Brettell, teaching German, both at the University of Texas; Laurel Brettell, a pianist on the staff of San Jose State University.
Back in England, Debbie & Jeremy Brettell run a mail-order service for the Smooth-Haired Daschund Club.
There are plenty of web-sites posted by Brettells around the world:
Mary Brettell from Australia (author of the One-Name Study site above) has her own idiosyncratic site. Meanwhile, in the United States you might try Striper Fishing with Steve Brettell, or finding out more about Fulham-born Julie Brettell, a singer-songwriter.
And of course theres a wealth of other sites on the web to help you with your Brettell and other genealogical researches.
