The ancestors of the name Ashebrok date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Ashebrok family lived in Gloucestershire, in the village of Ashbrook. The name was originally rendered in the Old English from esbrock, a word indicating a place where ash trees grew by a stream or brook.

Early Origins of the Ashebrok family


The surname Ashebrok was first found in Gloucestershire, at Ashbrook, listed as Esbroc and Estbroce in the Domesday Book. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
At that time, Esbroc was part of the Gersdones hundred, land held by Durand of Gloucester and was the size of one hide, land enough for one household with one plough, one border and one slave. However, the reference also lists Estbroce in the same Hundred, but smaller in size at a virgate which was one-quarter of a hide in size and held by Humphrey the Chamberlain. Today, little evidence is found of Ashbrook, Gloucestershire.

Migration of the Ashebrok family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Ashebrok or a variant listed above: John Ashbrook, who sailed to Maryland in 1646; Thomas Ashbrooke to Virginia in 1653; John Ashbrooke to Delaware in 1682; John Ashbrook to New Jersey in 1697.
