The ancestors of the Coulebrook surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived near a cool stream. The surname Coulebrook is derived from the Old English words col, which means cool, and broc, which means brook. Thus, Coulebrook 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, Coulebrook 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 Coulebrook is derived from residence in or near the settlement of Colebrook in Devon.

Coulebrook Early Origins



The surname Coulebrook 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



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. 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: Robert Colbrook who settled in Philadelphia in 1774; Harriet Colebrooke settled in Maryland in 1775.
