The Anglo-Saxon name Coolebroke comes from the family having resided near a cool stream. The surname Coolebroke is derived from the Old English words col, which means cool, and broc, which means brook. Thus, Coolebroke is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. However, Coolebroke may also belong to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads; in this case, the name Coolebroke is derived from residence in or near the settlement of Colebrook in Devon.

Coolebroke Early Origins



The surname Coolebroke was first found in Surrey 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



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Coolebrokes to arrive on North American shores: Robert Colbrook who settled in Philadelphia in 1774; Harriet Colebrooke settled in Maryland in 1775.
