Origins of surname

This is a very old English surname, probably linked to one of several places in Devon called Colbroc at the time of the Domesday Book in the 11th century. It is either derived from 'cool brook', or it described a place where colliers - makers of charcoal - worked.

Early records

The Jersey Colebrooks came from Kent, where the line can be traced back to the 16th century, arriving in Jersey in the mid-19th century.
