The Anglo-Saxon name Coulebrooke comes from when the family resided near a cool stream. The surname Coulebrooke is derived from the Old English words col, which means cool, and broc, which means brook. Thus, Coulebrooke 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, Coulebrooke 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 Coulebrooke is derived from residence in or near the settlement of Colebrook in Devon.

Coulebrooke Early Origins



The surname Coulebrooke 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Coulebrooke or a variant listed above: Robert Colbrook who settled in Philadelphia in 1774; Harriet Colebrooke settled in Maryland in 1775.
