The surname was most likely originally a habitational name, taken on from Stanbridge, a village in the English county of Bedfordshire.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Standbridge, Standbrige, Stanbrugge, Stanbrick, Standbridge and many more.
First found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor in the parish of Leighton Buzzard. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1276 when Gilbert of Stanbridge was recorded with the estates.
