The origins of the Coulbeck name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived near a cold stream. The surname Coulbeck is derived from the Old English word ceald, which means cold, and the Old Norse word bekkr, which means stream. Thus, Coulbeck belongs to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of tree. However, the surname Coulbeck 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 is derived from residence in or near the settlement of Caldbeck in Cumberland.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Coulbeck family emigrate to North America:
