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."

The Great Migration



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 lathbrook, or a variant listed above: Richard Ladbroke, who settled in Virginia in 1674; John Ladbrooke, who arrived in Virginia in 1657; Anne Ladbrooke, who came to Virginia in 1713; as well as David and Maria Ladbroke, who came to West New Jersey in 1772..
