BROOK Family History

This ancient surname, found in the spellings of Brook, Brok, Brock, Broeck, and Broke, is recorded in Germany, where it is sometimes preceded by the aristocratic "von", England, Scotland, France, and Ireland. Wherever found it is of pre 7th century Anglo-Saxon (Germanic) origins, and is usually habitational for one who lived at one of the places called Brook or Brock, in both England and Germany, or who lived by a broc(k). This may be either an area of rocky land, or a stream that flooded in winter. In some cases the name is occupational and a metonymic for a person who delivered fresh water, using a stone pitcher called a "broc"...
