The Braund Museum

We have a collection of artefacts relating to the Braund family. These have been purchased using society donations and subscriptions, or have been given to us for safe-keeping. We display these at reunions and family history fairs whenever possible. A small selection are illustrated below. We are also aware of many similar heirlooms in private hands and we would welcome details, so that they may be included in this virtual museum along with others shown here. If you can help, please contact us.

Click on each image for more information. There is a catalogue of the items that are pictured
here. This will help you if you are searching for artefacts relating to a particular person or branch. You can find out more about the branches of the Braund family here.

More items are being added all the time, please revisit this page and watch our museum grow.
