First raised between 1809 and 1813 from a seed of unknown origin by Mary Anne Brailsford in a cottage garden in Southwell, Nottinghamshire, where the original tree is still growing and producing fruit. Named after Matthew Bramley, the subsequent owner of the cottage, when the apple was first exhibited in 1876.

Very vigorous, fairly hardy but somewhat susceptible to spring frost..
