The Anglo-Saxon name Ludbrooke was established when the family resided in the village of Ladbrooke. Ludbrooke 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." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.


Ludbrooke Early Origins



The surname Ludbrooke was first found in Warwickshire, at Ladbroke, a village and civil parish about 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Southam in the hundred of Knightlow. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

This ancient Saxon village dates back to 998 when it was first listed as Hlodbroc. By the time of the Domesday Book of 1086, the place name was listed as Lodbroc. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Literally the place name probably means "brook used for divination," from the Old English words "hlod" + "broc." [4]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Ludbrooke arrived in North America very early: 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..
