The English name Easterbrooke is topographic in origin; that is, it was originally derived from geographic features of the region in which the first bearer of the name lived. The Middle English "Easter," meant "east," and the name meant "someone who lived to the east of the brook."

Early Origins of the Easterbrooke family


The surname Easterbrooke was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat. The first on record appears to be John le Eastbrook, who is mentioned in a volume called "Kirby's Quest for Somerset," as living in that county during the reign of Edward III, the Confessor (1042-1066).

The Saxon influence on English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066: the language of the courts was French for the next three centuries, but Saxon names survived.

Migration of the Easterbrooke family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Easterbrooke, or a variant listed above: Jacob Eastbrooke, a servant who was sent to a plantation in Barbados in 1660; Volintine Easterbrooks, who sailed from Newport, Rhode Island, to Falmouth, Nova Scotia in 1760.
