Brookesby Early Origins



The surname Brookesby was first found in Leicestershire at Brooksby. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held extensive estates. The early history of this name is so complex that for serious student interested in further research of the early history of the surname we recommend the ancient Harleian Manuscripts which are in the archives of the British Museum. These Manuscripts are a Catalogue of the Herald's Visitations between 1510 and 1600. This distinguished surname Brookesby of Broughton, Stapleford, Shollesly of Leicestershire, Brokesby of Lancashire, and Brookesby of Kilvington in Nottingham are all recorded in MS 1400, MS 1180, 1189, 1195, (in various folios) and others.
