About the study
The Easterbrook surname seems to have originated in Devon in the area north of Dartmoor. Records show the name spreading from Dartmoor so that in the 19th century there were significant numbers in Devon and Cornwall, South Wales, Somerset, London, Yorkshire and Cumberland as well as emmigration to the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and South Africa.
The generally accepted meaning is 'The family living East of the Brook'.
