The suffix -lake is often rendered as -ledge in compound names. The surname meant dweller by the rocky pond. The name originated in Lancashire or East Cheshire.

Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
