The Anglo-Saxon name lathebroc was established when the family resided in the village of Ladbrooke. lathebroc 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."

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the lathebroc family emigrate to North America: 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..
