Brimbles in Gloucestershire

Does anyone here have Brimbles in their family history?

I would like to know where the Brimble name came from. There are quite a lot in the West country and Hereford in the 1500s and 1600s, with variations such as Brymell, Bramble, Brimell etc.
I am convinced that they all came from one family, but cannot get further back than early 1500s.
I,m thinking that the first of that name may have been awarded lands by the King for services in battle. Any historical information would be welcomed.
As I live in Manchester, it is hard to get down to the local record offices and I have been working online mostly.

Thanks Sheilah
