    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from any of various places called with Old English hol ‘hole, hollow’ + brōc ‘brook, stream’, such as Holbrook (Derbyshire, Dorset, Suffolk) and Howbrook in Wortley (Yorkshire).

    Americanized form of North German Halbrock (or some like-sounding surname), a cognate of 1 above.

    History: This name was first taken to America by the brothers Thomas and John Holbrook, who emigrated to MA in the 17th century; their line can be traced back to Dundry, Somerset, England, in the first half of the 16th century. Other English bearers who started early lines of descent in the New World are Joseph Ho(u)lbrook of Warrington, Lancashire, who emigrated to MD as an indentured servant in the later 17th century; Randolph Holbrook, who was in VA in the 1720s but later returned to Nantwich, Cheshire; and Rev. John Holbrook, who emigrated from Handbury, Staffordshire, to NJ c. 1723.
