Hambrook

Value: Recorded as Hambridge, Hambrick, and Hambrook, this is an English locational surname. It originates from either Hambridge, a village in Somerset, Ham Bridge, a village in Sussex, or the four places called Hambrook in the counties of Gloucestershire (twice), Hereford or Sussex. The places as Ham Bridge translate as 'stone bridge' from the pre 7th century Olde English word 'han' meaning stone, and 'brygg', a causeway, or Ham Brook, the stony stream, with Hambrook in Gloucestershire being recorded as 'Hanbroc' in the famous Domesday Book of 1086. The transposition of 'n' to 'm' as in han to ham, is a common feature of early recordings, and may be put down to either poor spelling or thick dialects, or probably both. Locational surnames are by their nature 'from' names. They were names given to people as easy identification, after they left their original homes to move somewhere else. In so doing they took or were given as their surname the name of their former village. In this case the surname in its different forms is well recorded in the diocese of Greater London, the 'mecca' then as now, for those hoping to make their fortune. Examples of the surname recording taken from surviving church registers of the city of London include Anna Hambrooke at St Pauls, Covent Garden, on February 14th 1664, Susan Hambridge at the same church, but on November 8th 1798, and Joseph Hambrick at St Dunstans in the East, Stepney, on Augst 5th 1868.


POEMS WITH NAMES

Alexa seems quite shy and somewhat frail,
Leaning, like a tree averse to light,
Evasively away from her delight.
X-rays, though, reveal a sylvan sprite,
A-chatter like a bird behind her veil.
