Early Origins of the Shoebridge family


The surname Shoebridge was first found in Devon where they held a family seat. The name is believed to be derived from Shobrooke, a parish in Devon about two miles from Crediton. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book by Duke William of Normandy the parish was held by the Count of Mortain and there was probably a close relationship to another Shorbrooke, that of Shobrooke in Morchard Bishop. It was customary when the Normans introduced Surnames into England after the conquest for the sons of the Baron or chief-tenant to assume the name of their holdings to distinguish son from father. It is most likely that the parish was held by a relative of Count Mortain, half brother of Duke William. The Count had one son, William, and three daughters. Conjecturally, this family surname is descended. Through the centuries since the name has been subject to many interpretations of spelling.
