Appreciate all thoughts. It now appears brown after the winter. Will it come back? I will take new pictures as well.

It looks like some sort of laurel. Normally they are evergreen, but if it has turned brown, scrape the bark near the base and see if you see moist green. If so, it may be alive and sprout new leaves.

This winter did a job on my laurels. Severe windburn, but they'll bounce back in time.

Good to know. Will the brown leaves break off?

Also, I want to transplant them- can this be done with brown leaves?

Yes the leaves will drop off, and new ones will take it's place over time. As far as transplanting, I see no reason why it couldn't be done as long as the branches have a nice spring to them, and do not snap when you bend them a little. I'll be moving mine to a little less sunny, and more wind protected area this weekend also.
