An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Brockbank come from when the family resided in Yorkshire, where the name is derived from two places with the name Brooksbank in the West Riding. These place names are derived from Old English: brokes, the genitive of broke, which means "brook, stream"; and bank, as in riverbank.

Brockbank Early Origins



The surname Brockbank was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Brockbank or a variant listed above:
