Devon - Branscombe

Branscombe is a village in the East Devon district of the English county of Devon.
The parish covers 13.92 square kilometres (3,440 acres). Its permanent population in 2009 was estimated at 513 by the Family Health Services Authority. It is located within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, overlooking Lyme Bay.
The name of the parish is probably Celtic in origin.

It is made up of two words, "Bran" and "cwm". Bran is a well established Celtic personal or tribal name that may also mean "black" or "crow black". Cwm is a topographical term still in use in English as well as modern Welsh to describe a steep-sided hollow or valley. So the name may derive from the first Celtic family or tribe to take possession of the land, probably from the Dumnonii tribe, sometime between 2000–2700 BC.
