Lake Genealogy & History

Lake is an English surname that is both topographical and locational. As the former, it comes from either the Old English lacu, meaning a water course, or laecc, which means bog, and it was used for people living near one of them. There are also several places named Lake, two recorded in Wiltshire and Devonshire, as well as many locations with Lake as part of a compound name. Lake family history begins with Richard de la Lake, who was entered in Shropshire's Pipe Rolls in 1200. Renowned members of Lake genealogy include TV host Ricki Lake, naval inventor Simon Lake, and John Lake, one of the first Olympic medalists.
