Not really that rare by the 16th century.

"16th Century Gloucestershire Names"

has <Bridgett>, <Bridget>, <Bridgret>

"16th Century Names from Ormskirk Parish Registers"

has <Brichet> and <Brychet>.

Not especially popular, but it's in the range with <Sara>,
<Lettis>, <Sibyl>, and more popular than <Rachel>, <Parnell>
