Elizabeth Brinksworth mar to George Penn abt 1600

Curious about Elizabeth's surname. Brinksworth has been attached to her in several postings on various sites. This is also the name of a village in Wiltshire very close to Minety, England and Penns Lodge Farm. Wondering if this is truly her surname and/or if village named for her family and/or whatever.............boggles the mind. I am going back to UK in a couple weeks and shall be in Wiltshire in early July. Will be spending a day at Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre. George and Elizabeth lived in Bratton Parish near the old Forest of Bradon, which is pretty much cut down now. Haven't looked at my line in a few years and am now in review mode before going over. I'm not really asking for any information now other than clearing up Elizabeth's surname if known for fact. Thanks........
