The Anglo-Saxon name ladbroke was established when the family resided in the village of Ladbrooke. ladbroke is a habitation name from the broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. However, one source claims that it may have originally been derived from a personal name as in "it was the daughter of Lodbrok the Dane who wove the famous Raven Standard, which always announced victory to the Scandinavian marauders by fluttering like a living bird."

ladbroke Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the ladbroke family name include Ladbrook, Ladbrooke, Ladbroke, Lodbroc, Lodbrooke, Lodbrook, Lathbrook and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the ladbroke surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
