The name Coolebrook is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived near a cool stream. The surname Coolebrook is derived from the Old English words col, which means cool, and broc, which means brook. Thus, Coolebrook 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, Coolebrook 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 Coolebrook is derived from residence in or near the settlement of Colebrook in Devon.

Coolebrook Early Origins



The surname Coolebrook 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



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Coolebrooks to arrive in North America: Robert Colbrook who settled in Philadelphia in 1774; Harriet Colebrooke settled in Maryland in 1775.
